Preserved tug Hudson back from overhaul

The museum vessel Hudson was due to have a major overhaul during 2022, so she went into dry dock at the Padmos Shipyard in Stellendam in the spring and returned to her Maassluis berth in November.

The fishing harbour of Stellendam has been home to Hudson before, as from 1964 to 1988 she was operational over there for the production of ice for the fishing fleet.

As she no longer has any engines, she had to be towed from Stellendam back to her home port Maassluis.

This was done by two other museum vessels, the tug Adriaan (1957) and the former salvage vessel Tonijn (1958).

Hudson, built in 1939, is the only remaining pre-war ocean-going tug in the Netherlands.

During the war, the ship was five years in service with the Allies.
