If I was going to have a model of a Dutch Tug, I'd want this one.

Have you got x-ray vision?

Anyway, back to the subject in hand The small boat appears to be flying Dutch flags. Maybe something to do with the Dutch Colonial days?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So this is putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 5.
In Aruba there is a celebration of the queens birthday called either Koninginnedag or Anja di La Reina. As part of that there is a miniature boat festival. I have no idea if it is related to your picture.

Ok I'll give you that but in fact ..... Hobart Timber Boat Festival in Constitution Dock every two years. Mate of mine built the tug .... it even has brass bell that he cast himself and a working head ffs. They actually use(d) it to move some of the yachts around.

----- deleted embarassing historical inaccuracy -----

whoa ... that is not right at all .... Abel Tasman was the first gweilo to visit Tasmania and he named it in honour of Van Diemen.
