A thank you to Brian for his little bit of research into the big red boat anchored at Edinburgh, which I saw last week. I have just spent a fascinating half hour reading up about it, and I feel lucky that I was there to see it. It is indeed a record breaking boat. It is the worlds most powerful anchor handling vessel, it has a bollard pull of 390 tonnes. Now I am not sure what that means exactly, but it sounds pretty impressive after reading up on it.
I have found a forum on which someone has posted pictures of a recent visit on board, they were lucky enough to be invited. I am drooling. The interior looks nothing like you would expect for a vessel working miles out to sea on the sea bed. It has all the luxuries you can imagine, it's like a five star hotel, or a cruise liner. Take a look, it is amazing.
