die nordreportage: Die Bojenmänner – Frühjahrsputz im Hamburger Hafen


They are like the caretakers of the port of Hamburg: the men of the harbour authority in Finkenwerder. Seven days a week, and if needed at night, they work behind the scenes to ensure traffic flows smoothly on the water. They can get into every corner with their tugs and barges: they dredge the harbour basin, fish waste and driftwood out of the water and maintain the embankments. But most of all they maintain around 500 navigation signs around the harbour.
