Speideren (RS 70) was built in 1966 and was stationed at Sørvær (Finnmark). Mark saw Speideren in February 2004 in Stockholm where she has been in private ownership since 2003. The Swedish owner had registered the vessel as a dive boat for 12 passengers.

Speideren after service in Malta has now returned to European waters and is under new British ownership.

Atlantic puffins have penguin-like colouring but they sport a colourful beak that has led some to dub them the "sea parrot". The beak fades to a drab grey during the winter and blooms with colour again in the spring.
