TS Morning Star of Revelation

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to be invited to form part of a volunteer crew to bring Morning Star back across the North Sea from Holland after an emergency engine refit. I was mocked as we waited for the minibus to take us to Dover for the ferry and the drive to the marina in Holland. A tripod? On a boat? Why?
