An interesting ship. I am trying to figure out how the Bundeszollverwaltung (Federal Customs Service?) works and its relationship to the Coast Guard (Küstenwache).

It seems as if the customs service has the law enforcement, but not the maritime safety, lifesaving, buoy tending, and ice breaking roles of the U.S. Coast Guard.

In any event, Helgoland is an interesting and (to my eye) unusual-looking vessel with its broad-beamed catamaran SWATH hull and twin funnels up forward.

I will enioy watching you build this one.
