Hi there,

Very many thanks for this, fantastic to see of course, see a new bridge going on as well, understand last of course guys working on the vessels rather than keeping arm chair supporters like me advised of course, but again, fantastic, preserving these craft for the nation, you deserve more support than I can give I know, form a laid up in a lighter vessel, due to be scrapped like so much of our marine heritage, very very well done, pics of the launch would be great, is is thence to Torquay? must sign off,

STOP PRESS!!!

MTB 219 is to be launched on the 31st of this month (next Saturday) at Bridgwater docks. This will be the first time she has seen water for nearly 50 years!!!

Anyone wishing to attend the event is more than welcome, the postal address is TA6 3EX. The launch is scheduled for 1200 hrs but it might be wise to arrive before hand to account for traffic etc.


P.S. apologies for the lack of updates and communications lately, as you can imagine things have been a wee bit busy.

P.P.S. there will be (lots of) drinks afterwards!!!

Hi Owen and Steve,

Many thanks for this Owen, and like Steve, also gutted not able to be there! darn work, gets in the way of things!! but wish you all the best for the lift, what a site, as per all last, magnificent effort to save this fine vessel, hope one day perhaps to Ramsgate as she was part of course of the channel dash, posted they have a memorial to the Swordfish pilots, but words of course, small matters to attend first like fit out etc etc!!!, we talk of the work of PT305 in America, fine, but we have yourself, Paul of 2552 and the ongoing work of MTB102, Medusa, plus our "new" friend in CMB9, MGB81 HSL 102.....we have a few thankfully, by the hard work and effort of you guys, I think there should be something via National Historic Ships, odd perhaps from me, but if I may, I will mention to them? hope that is OK, just the bare facts as given of time and place,
