Thank you Christian

Some good shots - hope the docu is accurate - not too sure of the title - Machine Gun Boat 81

WOW!!  I finally see 81 in action! 

What a sight..you can definitely forgive the dodgy commentary!

So we can look forward to "Massive Speed" soon! 81 would look good with "guns" though.

Well, never been a big Youtube person but that was quite good, I agree a bit ropey with the facts! as you say lets hope they correct this by the time the show is aired! Good to see 81 on the move as well as 206, quite a site.

The series 'Massive speed' has started I am watching about dog fights, this means I will probably miss the one  with MGB 81 ! (I don't know when it is)

For all those former trust members who have followed the restoration of MGB81 with interest, there will be a news item on BBC Breakfast tomorrow morning (tues 9th feb) starting at 6.50am, again at 7.50am and 8.50am and throughout the day. There will also be a related item in The Times.

I spent 15 years preserving this little part of our maritime heritage, and am delighted that the efforts of my father, myself, my team of restorers and volunteers has now received national recognition.

Great to see the boats on BBC this morning!

The report seemed quite accurate, not too sensational and great footage of them at sea.

Does anyone know if the public will be able to go out on them?

Cant see the rest of the report, already late for work!!
