The motor vessel "Kalan" (russ. калан, english "Sea Otter") was a patrol boat on the Don River during the times of the Soviet Union and after the Soviet's collapse. Its task was to control fishing quotes and illegal fishing in the region. Since a couple of years, it just sits on the shore line near Konstantinovsk in the Rostov Region, rotting. Today, it is used as the base for river lifeguards of the neighbouring beach during summer, who spend their time on the quarterdeck playing cards and drinking tea when they are not about to rescue someone.
