Esqueceste-te de dizer qual é o bollard pull da senhora.. 60/70 tons?

Olá, não estava esquecido só alguma inercia da minha parte, para esclarecimento este navio, o Far Spirit não tem equipamento de AHTS, ou seja não tem cabo de reboque, rolo de popa, guinchos de manuseio, pinos, etc, este navio só tem caracteristicas de supply (PSV), existe o mesmo casco com o equipamento de AHTS mas de pouca capacidade, cerca de 70 a 80 ton de bullard pull, neste momento há um navio a operar aqui em Angola com o nome de "Viking Thaumas" que é exactamente esse modelo.
