Is this a miniature replica of a tugboat posed beside a green wall?

Not really.  But besides ULCVs like Thalassa Pistis (sea of faith?), even 100′ x 40′ tugboats seem to shrink.

 

Enlarge this photo and you’ll see the folks here heading out to fish implausibly turn their backs to the huge ship not that far away.

She’s has capacity of just under 14,000 teu, 

although she appears to have fewer than that aboard.

The 106′ x 32′ Brendan Turecamo, like the other tugs, appears to be shrunk.

She arrived here from Savannah and Colon Panama before that;  as of dawn Saturday, she’s still in port here. 

All photos, WVD.
