I have quite a few photos of crew boats which have been sent in over the years, but have not featured them much, since their operations are limited to the more benign seas of the world, but nevertheless they are interesting and sometimes innovative marine craft. This is the Fast Lion  captured passing through the Grand Isle anchorage. Being an ECO vessel we don't have  much information about it other than the fact that it can achieve 30 knots (an impressive figure in itself) and is 170 ft long. Vessels of this type are typically powered by four engines developing between 7000 and 8000 bhp.
