    Are the cranes that were on the boat deck gone now then? Will those Caley davits take the newer, larger Deltas?

    The yellow securing points were added sometime around 2003 in anticipation of Eithne going on a resupply mission to Liberia. The Helideck is now laid out to hold securely up to 4 TEUs or 4 Mowags.

    The sunken X's on the deck were the original securing points for the Helo but the Yellow securing points were added later.

    The hanger was used for funtions and is now dedicated to hosting functions.
