Does it look anything like a tug boat and long barge? There's one been at anchor in a bay between Skala - Poros for a day or so.

Full of Kef's share of illegal immigrants, no doubt.  Be a lot of Albanians without jobs soon.

It is a tug called Bandia, registered in Togo. Came past Katelios today.

Came from Argostoli direction before anchoring in Kakolagadi area, gone back towards Argostoli. Wonder what's on the barge?

I think it has to be the removal and dumping of the remains of the harbour wall and walkway in Lixouri. The tug and barge go out loaded every day, and come back empty.

Sounds like the perfect refugee ship.

Sorry. Looks like I got it wrong.
The tug in Lixouri is named Konstantinos.

Last time a barge like that came towards Argostoli it was German and the Italians opened fire on it.  :rant:
