Judging by the wake she also appears to have a Paddle Tug attached to the Stern.

There appear to be two tugs at the stern, possibly screw driven so this could well be the combined wake of both. It doesn't look as wide as the paddle tugs wake.

Re: stern tugs. If you look carefully I think you can see the wake from the paddles of the furthest tug between the two tugs.

Before Voth's the Navy would use a Paddler as one of the Stern Tug's, the Paddler being between the first tug and the "Battlewagon", it look's a bit like the "Cracker" with one of it's funnel's two funnel's in front of the Bridge
