Vermontborg - Delfzijl, Holland

Aground on the rocks near La Capelle Reef off the west coast of Guernsey, U.K. in the English Channel on January 18th, 2003. The 1976-built, Dutch salvage tug Boxer and the 2001-built, 4,975 horsepower, British salvage tug Lady Laura are seen here holding off preparing to pull Vermontborg free of the rocks as the tide steadily increases. She was finally re-floating at around 18:00 this day...
