Just an update to my previous pots, was looking round the interweb and found this courtesy of the Jersey Post, newspaper:--
AN old tugboat that has been berthed in St Helier Harbour for many years is about to get a dazzling maritime makeover as part of this year’s Skipton Art Series of community events.
The Elektra – a former US Army tugboat brought over to Jersey in 1995 – will be transformed during the next few weeks into a work of art by a team of Skipton Art Series artists led by Ian Rolls and Matt Daly.
Mr Rolls created the design, which is based on ‘dazzle’ camouflage, an abstract system of stripes and lines that was used in the First World War and credited to British artist Edward Wadsworth. The optical effect of the design was intended to make it difficult for the enemy to accurately target the ships.
Fantastic picture by the way, well done

|More than just a prop me thinks, no mast or services, and the table and chairs on the rear deck would suggest that it is a permenant fixture, and used as a leisure vessel|

At some of the angles, you can see what effect WWI camo schemes might have had.
Like to see it in the water sometime.
