Recently FUGRO MERCATOR (a Research/Survey Vessel) has been 'stooging' around offshore between Dunbar and Skateraw for several days. Looking at the ship's historic track she appears to have been surveying the sea-bed for a future cable 'connection' from the Nng future-windfarm, off the Isle of May, and a place to come onshore near the National Grid.
