Hi there,

Yes, just watching local South East today news and very interesting piece on the Rye ship builders, built three of six MFVs which sailed to the Far East to lay mines, all oak with little metal fastenings of course, reporter then spoke in front of the Fairmile that has been there a while now, number has gone from memory, did visit a few years ago in heavy rain but no one about, but she clealry is still there, was talk of going to Portsmouth, patronage of Admiral Zambellis, spelling sure not quite right. Visited over the weekend Portsmouth dockyard, saw Tim Deans of this forum, advised new coastal forces museum due soon at Gosport, with the Fairmile already there, but that may? be static or even in side....all the best,

Johnk
