Involved in the concept, construction and operation of the Adamant when with the RMAS. Unfortunately MOD design section would interfere and the result was not ideal the vessel often referred to as the Vomit Comet. Nice to see her back where she was built.

I seem to recall that one of her skippers was Tommy Harkness - yes/no? Nice to know that DG Ships maintained their unrivalled ability to b****r up a promising vessel design!

Adamant was restricted in her speed owing to wash/wake problems I believe? So her new owners must be letting her rip!

What's the rule about ship names, given that the RFA have a British registered vessel called Cardigan Bay? Can there be two of them because they are registered in different ports, albeit both British?

I do remember that there were two tugs back in the 1980s with the same name but slightly different spellings - one was Dextrous of Dover Harbour board and the other was Dexterous of the RMAS. Whether or not there are rules governing same names I don't know.
