Looks good and I suppose Herman Mawe.. (partially obscured) is German for Boaty McBoatyface.

Sorry Tomthecat it's a British thing when a public competition was held to name a new Antarctic explorer ship and this won but top brass didn't like it so called it the 'David Attenborough' instead, so boring.
No offence taken :laugh: Boaty McBoatyface, that's funny, I probably would've voted for that, too... The prospective crew probably wouldn't be too happy about such a name however.

I had no idea who Hermann Marwede was either. Looked him up on wikipedia. He was a longtime director of Beck's beer of Hamburg and a supporter of the "Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger", the German equivalent of the RNLI. This vessel was named after him to honour his and his family's support.
