Maybe so. The RIB itself has three PC monitors onboard, so must be running some serious countermeasures themselves!

AIS is the giveaway these days. It makes monitoring restricted areas pretty straight forward, 4knts in a straight line and bingo! Two of those PCs will be for Facebook.

AIS? You must be sh1tting me! No-one runs AIS! I pass multiple fishing boats and patrol boats when I make a decent passage, and devil the one of them shows up on my AIS. Just the feckin English yachts callin' the fathoms as they progress....

That said, there may be some truth in that!

Illegal Cardigan Bay scallop dredgers face fine of up to £1m in biggest case ever brought by Welsh Government (From Western Telegraph)

No hiding from VMS. These guys are VERY local to me. They'd been monitored for weeks prior to being pinged.

Excellent. I should have said that I have less than no sympathy for them. I got a walk around one of the Protection Vessels a while back and she had a switch for "Trawl Lights". I was very impressed

Not in our side of the sound. If Dan were there he would have managed a few.

Well of course, it was a N wind! The sea calmed a lot when we were about 5 Nm south of Islay (getting some shelter) and we made Ardbeg with a final approach speed of 40kts. Not sure donegaldan would have managed a lot of footage. That said, he did very well yesterday - spent 90 minutes outside in the Antarctic winter and got some deadly footage:
