Great shot Chris, as has already been said a very unusual looking vessel.

They are certainly different, I'll give you that Chris. Perhaps the skipper would like to give us a spin in the gin palace? Couple of years since I have been on the Solent.

Thanks Derek, I quite like them simply because they are different. I quite like the Gin Palace perched up on the top! A new line in rescue boats perhap or the Captains runaround?

Hello Pekka, thank you, I had a mad half hour while working, vessels appearing from all directions.
