|JOHN HARRIOTT (Thames Executive Charters) at Embankment, 20th May 2008
JOHN HARRIOTT operates peak hours commuter sailings from Putney to Embankment, along with the HENLEY, plus charter sailings on the Thames. she is capable of over 22 knots. Whilst the TEC refers to her throughout as JOHN HARRIOT, she is clearly JOHN HARRIOTT on the boat itself. John Harriott (1745 -1815) was a magistrate and originator of the scheme for a Thames Police Office. Presumably this boat JOHN HARRIOTT is an ex-Police launch.
