The ship in the earlier blog has swung round now, revealing itself to be the Trinity House Vessel Galatea.Galatea is a multi function tender, providing support to the Trinity House lighthouse service in tasks such as maintenance work, buoy deployment, wreck location marking and towing. She is also able to carry out additional tasks such as hydrographic surveying and wreck finding and contract commercial work. Today I see she has a couple of navigation bouys on the aft deck.

Her normal home port is Harwich, so its not hard to see why she'd want to spend a couple of days with us in Swanage.
