81 has just been painted topsides, and we need an oval Carley float for forward of the wavebreak.

Talk to me on pathfinder@safemariner.co.uk

Also need a v drive..RAF W27, for HSL 102, if anybody knows where these may be found?

Hi there,
 
Further re above and on the What's new section, posted re future of this site....see MGB81 in the water with other PNBPT boats there....trust no further water getting in around those P brackets......see the site for her is still one page, we shall see, noted a big goverment donation for WW1 commeration, OK for sure a big event! but might overshadow D-day.....

Hi there,
 
Just seen latest posts on the What's new page, shame to see Ark Royal on her way, but noted on news perhaps hope for last of class to be preserved.....well we shall see, most interesting also seeing MGB81 re-launch and works done to p brackets/area, IBTC doing the work as well as sponsoring this site, fantastic, as above wondering how plans to do a final? round Britain trip going, any progress on fund raising, last as I say page was just one, bit of money on there but sure not enough, still hope she might not end up high and dry at the end, but understand of course the difficulties...many thanks,

Hi there,
 
See latest pics of MGB 81 on the what's new page there, looks serious stuff as being blocked off, not on a metal stand....trust it goes well there, looking still I hope for a tour in 2014....appreciate of course easy said, would not be cheap as far as at least fuel is concerned alone..., see request for watch keeping on HSL102...sorely tempted, regret though costs for me an issue...of course offer of day pass is all one can expect, to get in for free....hm....well let me think, hope perhaps "locals" will fill the gap, any how, enough,
