Dan, by any chance did you photograph the base from which these boats operate? I guess it's a sought after job? Any ideas how many responds they get in a year? Are the guys attached there for life, or do they get moved on when they get too comfortable? I had some incredible photos sent to me of the Bangkok Fire Boat Station and all the fire stations and engines in the City but a computer crash put that lot to bed, unfortunately, ,
