Photographer's Note

For a scientific program for the Dutch Television we (editorial staff ) must make a item of the Dutch coastcoard. They had a new kind of rope to take people out of the water. There where boats and a helicopter.

The shooner in the background had taken part in the movie. We put the crew on that ship for some shots. I was aboard a fast coastguard vessel. They need a couple of shots of this boat. We make a couple of runs at 34 knots.

I was standing on the back of the Dorus Rijkers. At the last run i can take a picture. The boat was really stable, even with this speed. I hope you like it.

The Dorus Rijkers is a lifboat of the Dutch coastcoard.

lenght: 14,40m
Engine:2x 680 hp

The big wave is created because the hydrojet engines.
