I have not ever featured a crew boat on this website, although I have plenty of photos of them which people have been good enough to send in over the years. This is the Rapid Runner II apparently owned by Laborde Marine, built in 2006 and capable of 30 knots. Its four Cats develop 6000 bhp. The photo was probably sent because it depicts some guys perched precariously on the periphery of a "Billy Pugh". This is not as frightening as it looks, but you have to hold on.

I don't know who took the photo, but it is posted here on 5th October 2017.
