    The first one looks like the big RR's used by the Royal Engineers Boat Section to patrol Lough Foyle a few years ago. Inboard engine.

    its the Special Boat Service, not the Secret Boat Service so if it is SBS and it's passing through the public domain then it's fair game for any happy snapper.

    however it looks exactly like the standard Royal Marines Mk3 Rigid Raiding Craft (RRC) to me:



    i'm sure you don't need to barricade the doors and windows tonight PMTTS :wink:
    Looking at the profile of the engine cover I would guess its Mk3 craft as described above

    Here is the rib I mentioned previous. I also snapped this in exactly the same location at the RM boat, but a couple of weeks ago.

    Probably would be a good idea not to publicise your taking pictures of that nature, maybe just google, but if it is involved in any SF training i doubt they would shake your hand for splashing it all over the net.
    they're fault for being spotted! Anyway, they're well covered who ever they are.

    Pmtts :

    Are you based in poole, as the gear being worn by the Cox'n looks a bit too HSLD for bootnecks. Possible SBS?
    Im not to far but more the Southampton End of the Solent. I spotted it heading towards the 17 Port and Maritime Regiment Sea Mounting establishment.

    Many thanks for the info

    Good point but No. The local Marine Unit use a VT Halmatic Rigid Inflatable.


    I guess they must have upgraded then so.
