The Galatea was definitely there yesterday, not sure about today. Found out some more about it:

"Trinity House’s Multi Functional Tender (MFT), GALATEA, delivered in 2007, has been designed with buoy handling, wreck marking, towing and multibeam and side scan hydrographic surveying capability. At 84m long with a service speed of 13 knots, she is fitted to the highest and most modern technical standards.

GALATEA is a state of the art vessel enhanced by many additional features including DPAA dynamic positioning, a range of high specification survey equipment, a 30t lift crane, a 1.2m² moon pool, a large working deck with the facility to lock containers on deck with plug in to 230v or 400v supply, a helicopter-landing pad and a high-speed workboat."

The Galatea is still moored in the bay today.

I have seen the little speedboat going to and fro from the vessel this last few days ...

You could hardly see the Galatea in the gloom ... but it was a strange sight to see the smaller (but similar looking) Prince Madoc sailing past The Galatea, in the direction of The Little Orme just before lunch.

I found this useful little website that shows all the shipping passing through local waters.

The map is continually updated and you get more information about each ship if you put your mouse over it.

If only more women said that to me.  ;D

I think I got that link from a Forum member on the old Llandudno Local who has served in the Merchant Navy, think it was Essien.
