Fleur du Cap

Coming around the corner at Barra, this amazing ship looked ominous in it’s dark green garb and navy looks. Turns out to be the first every locally designed and produced naval warship – for South Africa. It was a torpedo recovery vessell, high speed and very maneuverable – which we witnessed as they edged up to a local rowboat and bought some fish off them!

Not sure what they are doing anchored off Tofo, probably that cable again. Seems like the ship is Subtech owned now…see above link for interesting reports…

And a huge kingfish one of the guys shot while at anchor in 6m right out front of Tofo! Pic to follow!
