Thought We needed a place to drop General Messages on Boat locations so we dont "wonder off the beaten track" on some threads (Guilty as Charged i'm afraid).

This was sort of what I was getting at with the "boats" thread, so people could add boats they'd found or knew of and maybe a new topic started if sufficient interest was found? Didn't really work but hey, I tried!

Hi All

New Question!

Were any ST's 48 foot (If it Is a ST?)

and the same design as the 41 ft hull?

Don, Spoke to the previous Owner....

Says the Hull was in good order!

The Hull, He said has a position for a Third Prop in the hull floor,

He Thinks she was a ST or a Navy Launch of some kind, he gave me pictures of her when he had her.

I will scan and post!

Regards

Jim.

Hi Jim

Looks like she could've been post-war JS White-built Admiralty FMB;what do you know about her?There were some wartime-built BPB craft of this approximate size,but I must admit I don't see the similarity,for starters the stem curves the wrong way (chine to deck)and the entry is too fine.When was she built?What is her beam?How many engines?Is she on a brokers page?Tell us more!

Regards,Christian

Hi Christian

She is the one in Balloch Marina.

The Owner of the Marina wants her gone...Two Perkins She is abandoned...

Was Talking to Don about her...trying to get someone to look her over soon as possible.

The Previous Owner just phoned me and I will meet him this week for a chat...and I have some more leads up this way!

Pity i'm running out of time!!! bummer

Regards

Jim.

I edited in a pic of an FMB sold recently,I don't think she's a sister,the sides flare out on "your" boat and on "mine" they are straight.Hmmmm.... 

Re Basra MTBs-Is your mate allowed to take pics of that kind of thing?
