              great images Bengt,specially the ''flax'' a nice old look and with to splashes at her bow.
              about the ''tambur'',not a way of ''towing'' we see here,over here we are more of the ''pushing'' kind.

                        I have posted many pictures of the little wooden tugs widely used in Singapore for light towage and assisting in docking/un-docking etc.
                        (Better known locally as "ST tugs" due to the registration letters for tug issued with Harbour Craft Licenses)

                        Here is a closer look at a couple of the larger ST tugs:



                        This last one has a rather unusual Superstructure.

                        The Towing hook doesn't entirely meet IMO requirements:

                              I just mentioned autumn colours referring to trees in the background of a ship in the fishing boats thread, but here it's the ship that has the autumn colours in this fine photo.
