Being on the edge of Europe, surely an important job. Always two hands full of water beneath their keel and a good Sunday for you.

Nice series VP! Hope the boat wasn't speeding away in an emergency.

It seems you are always about a decade or so ahead of us. Maybe someday we'll be buying your used CG boats.

That CG boat wasn't chasing you was it? LOL
Our Coast Guard boats are the same color. Is the color international? MB

I wish I could be on it.
SAR, lifeboats, all have my deepest respect.

Love the colour of the Guardia Costiera building on the top shot. It's a great composition too.

In San Juan, there were two of these doing circles around our cruise ship at departure. Sort of doing tricks it looked like. Pretty cool though.
