14th December: Autonomous Survey vessel

While watch keeping at Stone Point we saw the entrance to Beaulieu River being surveyed by the survey vessel Rebel Anchorman using an unmanned surface vessel (USV) – an “Ocean Infinity Seaworker 8“.

We often hear Rebel Anchorman being involved with Coastguard helicopter training or other safety training exercises so it was interesting to see her at close range as well as watch the USV survey.
