                  Super photo.

                  I wonder what the large horizontal "H" is for. It looks functional, not decorative. Maybe it can be dropped as a flotation device, like a mini MOB boat.

                  And I love the yachts on the horizon. Perhaps it's the annual race of a Hoek or Rotterdam yacht club?

                      Aha, so it's a fender.

                      It's much clearer in the photo of CETUS, that these vessels are SWATHs.

                      By the way, I sailed Sheerness-Vlissingen several times in the 1980s. Do you remember the Olau line?

                        I remember the Olau Line Sheernes-Vlissingen finished 1994 with Olau Hollandia and Olau Britannia.

                              Slightly off topic, but still a great story:

                              Last year, the pilots of Ålesund wanted to order two cakes for their Christmas party.. when asked what they wanted to have written on these cakes, they said Merry Christmas on both cakes.

                              And, that is what they got on both cakes: "Merry Christmas on both cakes".

                                Maybe "på begge kakene" would make a good CV motto.
