The tug looks really incongruous. Which means the ship looks absolutely fantastic; but for the necessary life raft canisters, like a very old painting magically come alive.

Tommy, it is a good result, although there is a tug right there, I've heard of this ship, but never seen it and did not realize that it was blue, it's been completely out of the East India

She is a true copy / rebuilt replica of the Swedish East Indiaman " Gøtheborg ".

In 1745, on a return voyage from Canton, China to Gothenburg, Sweden ( her home port ), the original " Gøtheborg " hit an underwater rock just outside the harbour of Gothenburg and sank.

Interesting ship and a good photo of her.
