Has it been up so long? I had forgotten about it.

She is Scottish and the location is Peterhead late September 2011.

Having now unpacked my bag, I've been in Scotland for the New Year, and set my hard drives up again, the answer is that you indeed may make such a  suggestion however, the name that you have provided is as invalid as the the one given by the previous respondent.

May I suggest that you think along the lines of a station (gare).

Kings Cross !!

Is that a name of a station ? I know only one british station name ... and so stupid for me...  Waterloo station  >>:-(   For me Kings Cross is an Australian railway station close to Woolloomooloo and Naval Base

In fact I've seen long time ago this trawler named Kings Cross but she was red !    http://www.flickr.com/photos/29236302@N03/3219293781/ 

Then now with the name Lunar Bow and Pathway I searched for the owner compagnie site and found this - the third purser is Kings Cross http://www.lunarfreezing.co.uk/services/fishing  That means the red boat is now with the owner colour : blue

Indeed you are correct it is the Kings Cross.

The station is the London terminus for all East Coast main line trains running to the north. I know of the Kings Cross station in Sydney and the reputation the area had(has?) which i believe is somewhat similar to the London one; though I have to say I have don't have any experience of the service's which, I believe, are on offer in both locations.

Tatata, the Czechs were not involved in Austerlitz battle and are just indigeneous people around the battle place just like the Belgians of Waterloo - At Austerlitz it was Naploéon versus Russo-Austrian forces.

For Waterloo station imagine a Tokyo railway station named Pearl Harbour Station  :embarrassed:

Anyway it's just humour as if our dictator won in 1815 maybe we would have a parisian station named Mont St Jean (French name for the same battle) ... Then my mind is not in so far away past. Closer to us now, a lot of men from my family served the Free French Naval Forces based in UK with welcome and support from British then even one of my uncle served the Royal Nay during that time.

Back to mystery ship, what about this one ?

LB & xtian29 ......yes our Sydney Kings X underground railway station is still thriving :D .......I walked from the underground down to work @ Garden Island Dockyard every day for years

The area is still the 24/7 center of bright lights, sordid & rowdy :kiss: :P  behaviour  %) ...however sadly has been over run in the past 20 years with a far higher proportion of drug dealers & killers & killings  >>:-(  <:( .......Derek

Oups, I remember a nice place with a long stair from the Naval Base level street up to a nice street with large shadow trees and colonial style houses, bed and breakfast and jazz bars. Then at the end of this street the Kings Cross station entry ...

So, nobody have idea about this mystery ship ?

The first I've seen one of these ships (two sister ship)  I was surprised as they are similar to the US Coast Guard Bear Class Cutter, the job of the mystery ship is also similar

So, she is a a coast guard vessel of some sort but, thinking about it, I suspect in more to do with customs or even collecting silly people who try to cross the Med on rubber rings.  I surmise the location is not that of France but in the vicinity of 44°24′40″N 8°55′58″E  though, of course, I may be completely wrong in my assumption in which case I shall be having umble pie for dinner.
