Interceptors are great for the big swells, but awful for short chop, speak to most pilot coxn's who had Nelsons that now have interceptors and many will swop without hesitation... I am in no way bashing the interceptors as they are as strong as an ox, however for pilot boat ops in particular, then the Nelson hull is far more exact and predicable whilst manoeuvring towards a vessel at the outer pilot station - especially near Nab Tower for those that know it!!
