The 1972-built, 242-dwt, 807-grt, deep sea tug Ocean Wrestler is seen in this photograph while she was tucked alongside McKeil Marine's yard in Hamilton on November 21st, 1999. Moored alongside Ocean Wrestler is Pacific Standard while the small harbour tug Paul E. No. 1 is tucked under her bow. Immediately behind her are the tugs Techno St. Laurent and Kay Cole.

She was built in Oostende, Belgium by Belaird-Murdoch S.A. as Wrestler. She was renamed Ocean Wrestler in 1989, Hadisangsuria in 1996 and Ocean Wrestler again in 1998. At the time this picture was taken she was owned by Bevis Assets Ltd. - A division of McKeil Marine.

Nice pic of Ocean Wrestler posted to your site. At present she is laid up here in Vancouver, in fact specifically at Allied Shipyards in North Vancouver. I see her almost every day from a large bridge that we use to get from North Van to Vancouver over the Burrard Inlet. She is indeed quite a tug looks like she could tow a mountain!
