I wrote about a local mooring barge, the "Charles Atlas" back in April, well the other mooring contractor on the river has a similar barge, but it's painted PINK.
While you might be forgiven for thinking it's a reaction to the he-man Charles Atlas competitor, it's actually part of the company branding.
There's the Pink Ferry, which runs a passenger service between Hamble town quay and Warsash.
And across on the Warsash side, there's the pink shelter. When the ferry company came up with this branding, there were a few complaints about the shelter, but it's become an accepted part of the Hamble scene over the years.
Pretty much everything in the yard is pink (there's almost a play on words that I couldn't resist).
Including the fork lift truck!
I'm not quite sure what a pink canal boat is doing on the slip way, maybe it's going to be used as a pink, floating porta-cabin.
And of course the river wouldn't be complete without a pink water taxi.
