Cool. Here is the site: Port Revel

They have quite a few photos, as well as an aerial photo and diagrams of the training lake.

But looking at their ships, and especially the tugs (as on one page they have photos of all 3 of their tugs) I think the picture here is of a similar facility somewhere else.

It'd be cool to find one here in the states if they allow visitors.

It appears to be very heavy on the "modern art/design" but extremely weak when it comes to the naval architecture end.

I don't think so, too many items that are consistent, the direction of shadows, the heel of the boat, the safety cone and line almost out of the frame in the foreground and the big one for me is that the wind direction per the flag and the ruffles on the water agree.

The boat is a Combat 90 of the Swedish Navy. One is on loan to the Dutch and Royal (British) Marines for 6 months or so for evaluation, currently in the Gareloch on the West coast of Scotland. This may be the Dutch part of the evaluation, being on a canal, but it is still flying a Swedish flag, so lets not blame the Dutch. The trial boat has been modified with davit hooks in order to fit on a Dutch or British landing craft personnel type davit on a “Bay” or Assault ship so I don't think this is it. Nice bit of driving whoever it was.

Sharp turns, indeed.

Is that combat boat picture public or has one claimed copyright for that? I would like to use it for presentations and my homepage?
