Ocean patrol

Little boys in the UK want to be a fireman when they grow up. Little boys in HK want to join the marine police.
It's easy to see why. You get to zoom around the outlying islands on a cool boat with lots of equipment and accost any suspicious-looking smaller craft potentially containing Chinese migrants or contraband.

Like here, in a remoter corner of Sai Kung...

... or here, near Tung Ping Chau (note the fishing net, presumably for handing over ID) within swimming distance of the mainland.
