CAMERON

Spending a couple of days in the Great Harbour was Briggs Marine's CAMERON, a trials support vessel built in 1991 by Richard Dunston and intially a member of the Royal Maritime Auxiliary Service fleet. She was later sold to DERA, with her operation passing to Briggs while she was based at Rosyth. CAMERON is 33 metres in length, and can also be used to lay and maintain mooring and navigation buoys. She is now employed on commercial work on an increasing basis, and her owners were recently awarded a £100 million contract by Serco to provide navigation buoy maintenance and mooring support for the Royal Navy for a 15 year period.

Built in 191? Was that AD or BC?
