Trunky want a Bun?

Mt curiosity is getting the better of me.

There is a boat called the American Cormorant ( which is a boat /ship transporter) which is at anchor off Lee on the Solent. I keep going past it at night on the tug and It's unloading or loading some type of ship(s) . We have to keep our distance and I can't make them out so if anybody's out on a rib please let me know what it's doing?

Cheers
Stuart

Be careful, it's a float on ~ float off ship for small US army watercraft.. Make sure they don't misinterpret your Breton flag for the Al-Qaeda flag..
