'Why has this photo, taken on the 1st April last, taken over a month to get posted?', I hear you cry Cry!
It's simple - I somehow 'lost' the memory card twixt camera and the computer until it was found yesterday tucked inside a notebook! Don't ask!
When I came across this vessel in Whitstable I had no idea of the drama which had unfolded a couple of days before.
Apparently, with six souls aboard, it was servicing the off-shore windfarm when it struck a 'submerged object' and needed rescuing by the magnificent men in the Whitstable lifeboat who helped beach it.
So here it is but hopefully by now it has been repaired and re-floated ready for use again.
