Henk, now I see your article with many interesting pictures in Dutch Lekko nr. 156 (July 1990).
It is clear that the story with the various daughter-companies and half-daughters is a very complicated matter.

It sure is Jaap! There where many companies involved and no doubt, I maybe forgot one or two. There where also companies without tugboats you know. Hard to find without registered ships!
