Cal Mac and Royal Navy operation

Some great pictures. That wire rope ladder looks a killer to climb. Hopefully this test scenario never becomes a reality. British troops storm a passenger ferry as fears grow of Islamist attack on UK ship | Daily Mail Online

Good to see they are still practicing this type of operation.

Nothing new though. I Have a friend who used to be in the Marines who would be doing this sort of exercise on a regular basis - the 40 knot cross channel Seacats were "challenging" to get aboard!

I've been lucky enough to do this lots of times testing various boats and engines! Scared me to death first time!

I doubt if there's too much RN involvement. More likely the Poole mob.
