  • Good one David and also a glimpse of Haslar Marina's lightship.
    • Thanks Howard
  • Great capture David and info. Is that green vessel a lightship?
    • It is a lightship Jack but is in use as a restaurant/bar. It is at the entrance to Haslar Marina, Gosport. Nice venue in summer when you can sit out on the top deck.
