Patrick, the real Captain
We thought we should introduce you to the real boss on board this boat. Patrick the penguin was a 2012 Xmas present for the crew from her mum and he quickly became a favourite member of the team on board, winning lots of friends. He began by claiming the helm seat:
And then started helming the boat too:
His real role in life is supposed to be as a hot water bottle substitute but somehow when you put him into the microwave to heat him up, the sad little face just stops you from closing the door and hitting the start button:
He even got taken to June’s farewell dinner with her ex-workmates by Anne who threatened to penguin-nap him. Patrick enjoys fine dining as you can see:
So, should you see any references to Patrick in future, or pictures of him in strange places, at least you have been introduced properly.
