Hi Martin,

To put a name to the steam launch you saw- she is SL Kariat- a fast launch built to naval lines as an Admiral's Cutter by J. Samuel White. Owned by John Power and is regularly steamed on the Solent.

25Hp LIFU steam plant (if I remember correctly!).

She took part in the naval review a couple of years ago.
