I thought it was being lowered in at first from a dry stack, then realised it was just the clear water.

Nice fenders! Doing their job there fending off the other boats and dangerous harbour wall in the swell and waves!

FWIW, the reason she was strung out there was because there WAS a gentle swell induced wave running up the quay (as evidenced by the water marks) and she was getting yanked along the wall, which is as rough as a badger's @rse. It also kept her safe when the usual tossers in the big Gin Palaces arrived for the pints - they just love an Inflatable Disembarkation Pontoon like mine

Phew! That may've doubled the size of the RB marketing team. Maxi would've had to have gotton a recruitment drive underway.

Just drive off leaving a nice black rubbing strake go faster stripe down their hull! amazing how hard they are to remove and certainly looks awful, thus reducing posing ability.

Possibly easier to remove than Sebago prints on tubes.

These things are 11m+ Last day we were there, they HIT two of our ribs while trying to leave the quay and didn't even stop to check for damage. I guess when you're pissed and have a 700hp Floaterhome*, Might is Right.

* Floaterhome, you heard it here first...
