  Oceanic Viking

  Looked this up as my daughter-in-law is training to serve on her as a member of the boarding party. Apparently started life as a cable layer. To me it looks uncommonly like a tank landing craft back to front.

  Discovered at the same time that Australian Customs have bought the Triton that used to be seen in Portsmouth harbour.

I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

More like a pipe-layer I think?
