              I have posted many pictures of the little wooden tugs widely used in Singapore for light towage and assisting in docking/un-docking etc.

                    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.
