I need advice.
So far I've been omitting the hull symbol in the fireboat file names because such small crafts usually don't have one.
The question is: should I add a hull symbol to the file names?
If yes, then which one? MV/SS, which are the most common ones but usually used for bigger ships, or something like FFV (for Fire Fighting Vessel), which isn't real but IMO looks kinda logical and should help keeping the main site more organized.
Any suggestions?

Built in the late 1990's these vessels are used for fire-patrolling large harbors, escorting ships carrying flammable cargo and offshore fire-fighting (oil rigs and such).

Not that I know of.
These SARs, although technically not fireboats, are really nice. I could do the 46m one (Hermann Marwede) if no-one else wants to claim her.

Built in 1974 this was the most modern sea-going fireboat in Germany. She served till 1998.

This makes me a question Whyme. Is this the fireboat sold to the Netherlands? become I see her, laying at the Maas-Kade, at a local village.

Awesome drawing to be noted too!

Yes, she was sold and now she is a "presentation ship" for the Dutch company "Metaaldraaierij Sepers bv".
