Poseidon

Poseidon, ARPAT oceanographic vessel, Regione Toscana, LivornoThe “Poseidon” is an 18-meter oceanographic vessel owned by the ARPAT, the Tuscan regional agency for environmental protection. A couple of years ago the boat was impounded for a while by the “Guardia di Finanza” because they found cheaper agricultural diesel fuel in her tanks, a strange case of a public agency cheating on taxes.

That is an intriguing tale. The Man taking enforcement action against The Man.

It's a nice and interesting boat. Too bad about the refueling "mistake."
