Something like a Redbay 850 with twin 150s would do!!

Stolen Ribs

Hopefully they may also assist in recovering some of the increasing number of stolen vessels

Did you know that there is a very large forward deck hatch on the Redbay 1050, through which a man, or several, can enter a commodious space beneath?

At 50kts I'd imagine..., err, nothing reeely. What was I saying?

When I worked for the fisheries we had a similar launch/recovery system on the stern, but....

They seem to steam at full speed up the ramp - we used to stick the bow on the stern ramp and attach the winch cable rather than driving up the ramp.

They often berth near one of my regular commands but seem to be doing crew changes so I've never been brave enough to go and ask for a look around.

Nor they others: Linky

"The movement of "illicit commodities" across the land border between the north and south of Ireland was relatively unhindered by the agency staff.

They admitted to carrying out no detection work along the border because of personal security risks."
