The new Customs Cape class patrol boat, Cape St George moored in Darwin Harbour today. Hopefully I will be able to get some better photos soon.

Hi John

I would love to see some more photos of the Cape Class vessel if you are able to get any. There are not many photos around of these things yet. I have started building my own model of one so any reference photos would be very helpful.

Steve.

I assume you have already gotten everything from the Austal website: http://www.austal.com/en/products-and-s ... boats.aspx

Have you tried contacting Austal directly for more info/images?

Steve
The only times I have seen it, I cant get any closer. It always seems to be on the other side of the harbour. I will keep an eye out for it and get some more photos if it comes closer to shore.
