Icelandic Whaling Tug – Stuck in Customs

Icelandic Whaling Tug

This was shot a bit after sunset at the docks in Reykjavik. The boats were rolling in with the sweet scent of whale, our friends from the sea, opened up an blubbering all over the place. I think the ships get so heavy and full-o-whale, that they keep a fleet of these tugs handy.

Beneath the picture of the tug boat is a picture that I sensationally called an Icelandic Battleship. Of course, it is nothing of the sort. It’s merely a Dutch Coast Guard ship, but it looked fairly imposing in the cramped Reykjavik harbor.
