Could have been worse.

If the Chinese had got hold of it, the reverse engineering would be well advanced by now and you'd be competing with cheap imports this summer looking remarkably similar to yours but at half the price!

Take a look at this, Work Boat - KD Marine. Think this is the sort of thing I was thinking of.

Hi there
They use daughter craft/ribs for diving work when a dsv can't or isn't allowed to get close enough to the platform or FPSO for the divers to reach the work location I hope this helps
