Many boats built by British Power Boats started their career as an MGBs but were later converted to MTBs. Does anyone knows the correspondance between their number as MGBs and those as MTBs ?

The 71' 6" British Power Boat MGBs re-numbering sequences from Fast Boats and Flying Boats by A Rance;
MGB 74-81 became MTB 412-416
MGB 107-109 became MTB 417-418
MGB 110-122 became MTB 430-441
MGB 123-130 became MTB 442-449
MGB 131-138 became MTB 450-457
BPB MTBs from MTB 458 onwards were built as MTBs.
N.B. There's more MGBs than MTBs due to wartime losses.

I still have problems with the conversion list. Let's take MGB-110 for example. She was sunk off West Dyck on May 29, 1943 (German source). She should have been renumbered MTB-430, which in fact was sunk on July 27, 1944 off Normandy. It seems to be too many lives for only one boat

Disregard my previous message: I'm better at e-mails than at math. I'm checking if the correspondance works (it does for "MGB 74-81 became MTB 412-416" at least)
