    L.E.Aoife just got a bollicking on VHF from Port of cork for speeding in the channel. AIS shows them doing 15kn where you are supposed to drop speed to 5kn.

    The Voice on Aoife apologising to the Cork Harbour radio did not get much sympathy on this very public admonishing.

    Ouch.

    Cork Port ops in no position to bollick for speeding given that a few years ago the pilot cutter doing 22 kts sliced into a Yacht which had right of passage ,the Sonia.

    Look in the OPV replacement thread, your ball hop is in the right region.

    Angola Owes us. We cleaned up loads of their landmines in the 90s. That said, isn't germany about to gift them a few fast attack craft?

    And they wonder why flying helos from PV sized vessels was dangerous.

    Qiuck calcultaion between peaks and troughs the bow moves 30 ft up or down at any one time......Pity have a picture of the game played by the brave during heavy seas on PVs in times of old. where guys would launch themselves from the guard rail on the stern and see how long it took to hit the deck depending on the swell....

    That's a CPV (seems to be coping with the conditions but I wouldn't like to be on board). The HPV is double the displacement.
