Hello, Tom MacSweeney here, and thank you for tuning in to the MacSWEENEY PODCAST.

As a marine correspondent I’m fortunate to meet great people who do amazing things… One of them is Frank Kowalski, the Managing Director of Safehaven Marine which designs and builds boats, but not just any boats……

These are at the leading edge of fast boat technology….. naval and military craft, with stealth capabilities, which can approach illegal operators at sea without being detected by radar…

On my Podcast this week, he tells me why he is attempting to set a world speed record in one of his boats, the powerfully named THUNDER CHILD, around Ireland and Rockall, which has never been attempted before. The record is underway details here

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
