This is a Mexeflote ,a landing raft used by the 17th Port & Maritime Regiment Royal Logistic Corps, Marchwood Military Port and also Royal Australian Navy. First deployed in the 1960's, also Falklands War , now used in humanitarian aid. Port now operated by Solent Gateway, part owned by the Scottish Govt.
Mexefloat is actually three sections that can be joined in any combination, bow, middle and powered stern. Can be clipped together to make pontoons/ landing stages etc.
