HELLO ALL.
HAS ANYONE GOT ANY CLOSE UPS OF ASR PINNACES,EITHER INTERIOR SHOTS OR EXTERIOR WOULD BE VERY INTERESTING AND HELPFULL, PREFERABLY IN WARTIME GUISE OR ORIGINAL. BY NEXT YEAR I WILL BE STARTING TO REBUILD 1255'S SUPERSTUCTURE AS PER ORIGINAL, EXCEPT I WILL HAVE TO USE IROKO BECAUSE OF THE PRICE OF TEAK NEEDED WAS JUST TOO DEAR. I HAVE INSTEAD GOT A 32FTX3FT IROKO BUTT ALL SLABBED UP AND SEASONING.
                  THANKS
                              STEVE

Hi there. This may be of interest to you. A 60ft three leg pinnace ( originaly out of RAF Calshot where she was paid off) was used in the 1971 movie "Catch me a spy" (Kirk Douglas) as a Brit PT boat and displays her original RAF number. The German one in the movie is a wartime HDML.

Many thanks for the welcome.Smile
 
There is not a lot of boat footage, most ended up on the cutting room floor Cry. However what is left is near the end.

The links seem to work ok.
 
Is that a Boulton Paul gun turret on the stern of the first launch? A similar turret has sat in an Argyllshire farm courtyard for many years, minus the weapons and plexiglass.

Well 1255 has got a shock coming! Hopefully I will put her into my dry dock that I have just bought, during the Christmas break where she will be stripped back to bare wood inside and out, and then epoxy and glass cloth sheathed, on the outside and repainted on the inside. She will stay in this dock until she is finished any tips on epoxy sheathing will be welcome although I've don't this work many times before just not on this scale hope the pic's are of some interest
my email is mistraman@gmail.co.uk

oop's forgot to ask, is that gun turret still in that field? if so, would you know how to contact the farmer? as I would love to have a real one to put back on 1255 or even to use as a pattern.

Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve,
The H&D e-bay project is Waaay too big a project for any one individual.
I hope she's saved though.

Did you ever get the gun turret?  I have a one page drawing for a 1940 Boulton & Paul quad turret by John Lambert.  I can post to you if you need.

Cheers
Don

Is the hull of a 60' Pinnace, displacement or simi-displacement?

The reason I ask is that some variations were quoted at 15 knots maximum which seems to be well above the  maximum displacement speed.

What is the maximum speed that ASCO do with 3 x 6354 Perkins engines?

Thanks
Don

Planing hulls on these, and at only 15 knots they are on the plane due to the large flat sections aft.
