Afternoon all and welcome to the Ships Blog for the beginning of August. Weather has been rather inconsistent of late. It has also been rather windy this week but things are quietening down for the weekend. There are some showers and thunderstorms possibly around Saturday afternoon and evening. Today’s picture is of the Border Force Rib ‘Alert’ coming in for an overnight berth. She is part of a new fleet of boats designed to reinforce the work of the more traditional cutters that patrol our waters! Have a good weekend.
