What a great pleasure to meet these guys at the harbour - they could not have been more helpful and forthright about their work. At first glance, the glide of these orange powerboats up and down Belfast Lough seems an almost effortless task, but close up this is a very skilled trade and constant management of risk 24/7 in high and low seas, jumping from ship to boat to land taking safe control of the great volume of steel vessel coming in and out of this busy port. Though a hub of corporate, international trade, Belfast Harbour is still a port bound together by personality and commitment to the job - long may it last!
Thank you to actor Ian Beatty for a superb opening narration.

The tide was running out so we used the forward spring to keep position as we went slow astern...
