This tug (Danegarth) doesn't look real

Danegarth seems like a model in this photo rather than a real tug... I'm not sure why??

Hi Simon  its probably the spotless paintwork and crisp lines as well as the sun light.   Geo.  lovely picture though.

I think you're right George; the light has a lot to do with it and the look of the water, which could be a boating lake!

Also, if a guy has the right photoshop program, you can place a picture of a model on just about any background you like.

She is at anchor with no 'daylight' signal (anchor ball) displayed and no lookout on the bridge  ??? ???

Great photo of a lovely looking British built tug :)

No one anywhere to be seen, like many (most?) model tugs.
