Last Weekend it was Hafengeburtstag in Hamburg, a big fair with many ships and so on...
On sunday it was my turn on the steam tug Tiger as a Deck-Hand, so we where steaming all day
and I took the opportunity to take some photos and made a video...
 

Bussard (8).JPG The sailship Zuiderzee from Holland, saw it 20yrs ago and now in hamburg Again

Zephir (1).JPG The wonderful Zephir also from the Netherlands, like the blue ships-body
Bussard (1).JPG There is the nice steamer Bussard steaming, it came over from Kiel some (sea) miles away...
DSCN9260.JPG DSCN9224.JPG My favorite Square-rigger, the russion Kruzenstern, it was build as a german ship in the 1920s. I love the ship.

TIGER4 (2).JPG Here Tiger is turning on the river and Kruzenstern is ahead...

Some Tiger photos, it was a such nice steaming that day!

And here some moving pictures, Tiger on steam while on the parade with other ships...



And the last one, the refurbished DUPLEX, first it was "only" air-tested (after restauration), and made some trouble...
But now  after some steaming in and tightening some things, its running nice and make no clouds ;-)
