Cowslip in Riverport

The sleepy port of Riverport, Nova Scota, at the mouth of the La Have River, and not far from Lunenburg, is one of the last places I would expect to find a tug (of any description). Once home to many fishing schooners and a bustling fish plant, it is now a much quieter place, with inshore lobster fishermen and a seasonal fish operation generating what little activity there is.

However the attractive wooden hulled Cowslip is parked on a trailer awaiting its next assignment. By the look of its neglected state that may be a while in coming.

I can provide no details except a suspicion that it may have been the tender for a marina or yacht club.
