Their size, air draft and manoeuvrability makes them ideal for use as safety standby boats for use within oilrig pontoon and bracing limits. In this role the Gannet and Teal provide support to personnel working over/around the water, and can assist with movements of any barges/pontoons being used as work platforms, etc. The boats are also used as general purpose workboats as required around the port area.
