Around the turn of the first decade of this century Tidewater had Remontowa, the Polish shipyard, design and build an number of small anchor handlers, designated the  NED 8167L. This vessel, the Tommy Sheridan Tide, is one. They have a useful 13000 bhp available giving them a bollard pull of 155 tons. Although Tidewater don't choose to make details of their fleet available I have photos of eight of them in my archives, sent in by enthusiastic photographers - so there may be eight of them.

This one was photographed in the Kiel Canal by Willi Thiel in 2010 and posted here on 2nd February 2018.
