Are model kits available for the later BPB 72' boats like 506 or 459.
Thanks

Yes, and no. I found it odd that a minesweeper would have only one engine though, screw fouling must be an occupational hazard for them!

I agree probably a bad design unless seconded to minesweeping.
Mind you most MFV's were single screw thst did minesweeping so I guess the configuration worked.
