This shows the salvage tug "Seefalke" which was a frequent visitor to Scapa Flow 1928 to 1933.
The painting is in the style of those painted by my Dad whilst working for Cox and Danks. He did other ships in use at the salvage operations but they were all left in Orkney.

I have a feeling she is preserved in Bremerhaven...

Seefalke is still afloat in the maritime museum at Bremerhaven.

The German law enforcement vessel was up here last year and also had the name, Seefalke.

A real fine painting.
My friend is from the "Schuchmann" family, the Seefalke belonged to.
