After the Recruit was hit last December by a ship in dense fog , her fate looked bleak. However GPS Marine bought her from Thameside Services at Gravesend and she was towed to Chatham (seen below). In December 2013 she was finally lifted ashore at Chatham Docks and it would appear she is being put back into service! Great news.

And how she could look when returned to service (name will most likely be changed to a GPS prefix)
