Hotspur IV

A liferaft aboard class V passenger ferry Hotspur IV [Hythe Ferry] managed somehow to deploy and here she crosses Southampton Water [14:43] on her way from Hythe Pier to Empress Dock for it to be removed [& returned to the manufacturers for deflating/repacking]. Once back in order the final 4 shots at 16:47 show her returned to her normal service across the Water.
