Nice Tender

Spent Monday afternoon at The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth visiting my Canoe.

Couldn't help noticing the interesting tender on the private 'ship' moored up outside.

The ship is called the George Town and I haven't googled it yet, but it looks ready for anything.

The Zodiac on the deck has twin inboard deisels and six Ulman seats.
It was nice to see a 'proper' RIB on board one of these things as opposed to something upholstored in White with Blue piping .

Hold on ! Whats wrong with blue piping !

Looks like a very serious bit of kit - is it because of the need on boats over a certian size to carry a 'proper' rescue boat. - I read this in 'superyachts' mag - the free one with RIN Int a month or two ago.
