Looking at the pics in the article, it seems that different countries have their own colours for the bow stripes on tugs. I've tried in vain to google for a page giving an explanation of which UK organisation (CG, ETV, fishery protect,etc) wears what.
Anyone found one please?

Season's greets and thanks in anticipation,

Yes Dave, I'd seen that site, but nothing to indicate the UK fleet identification stripes. And if I remember correctly it's not always stripes - I think I've seen yellow/black squares involved in a fishing boat accident. I was right - http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/det ... ssel:MINNA
Now I just need the names of vessels in all the other categories...
