Hi there,

Many thanks for this post, yes read about the D's being converted as above...great shot on the RN-CFV page of six D's at the Le Havre U-boat pens...advised by admin there they were using their depth charges for mine clearing...

Thanks to Pioneer for helping with the post.  I can provide higher resolution copies if anyone is interested. Photo courtesy of my grandfather: Kenneth F. Massey.  I will investigate whether the matting can be removed to provide more photographic detail.  If anyone has more information (or photos) on the '030' or as the original '683', I would be grateful.

Hi Been a while since I posted here!
Interesting that the description of her says "4 x Packard Merlin" 
Did they re-engine her?
Always though D,s had Packard 4M 2500 engines

Only yield when you must, never "give up the ship," but fight on to the last "with a stiff upper lip!"

Hi there,

Something perhaps really of nothing, sorting a few papers at home, underneath a pile found the proposal by Peter Webster for a replica D, MTB 718....he got as far as plans I believe ex the late John Lambert in fact, talked with a boat yard....not heard from Peter for a while now.......he said he had even got a "promise" of new engines.....but as per, nothing heard of late.....closest  we have, which is good for sure, are the Fairmile B's....
