  History  
 
Allen Tony26/05/2010The tug Ijsselstroom had been working on the construction of a new berth and breakwater in the Port of Peterhead. On the morning of 14 June 2009 she was tasked to act as a stern tug for the barge Tak Boa 1, which was arriving off the port with a cargo of 5000 tonnes of large rocks from Sweden.Ijsselstroom’s skipper chose to deploy her towline over her stern and intended to maintain position and heading relative to the barge by using differential ahead power on her two engines.

A bridle wire was not rigged. As the lead tug increased speed, the skipper found that he was unable to control Ijsselstroom’s yawing motion effectively, and 5 minutes after connecting to the barge, the vessel took a large sheer to starboard, girted and capsized.The position of the sinking is 4 cables SE of the entran ce to Peterhead Bay.
