Falmouth Boat Co. repaired extensive damage to this dive vessel after a cylinder of oxygen exploded and caused a cylinder of dry powder to explode simultaneously.
The ambulance boat for the Isles of Scilly had suffered port engine failure and Falmouth Boat Co. was commissioned to fix the problem and to refit this vital vessel.
