Hi All,

 

Just been sent  great shots of the above vessel now at Hythe Marina village at Southampton. She is in the ground next to the car park, so I don't think she will be going any where again. Any body got anything on this vessel?, if any one wants the photos, I can forward them to an e-mail address and if you are better at this than me, I don't think there will be a problem putting them up on the site.

Hi John

Please send to  and I'll re-size and post. In the meantime here is a glimpse of her, funnily enough she is not Range Safety Launch 1652 but rather 1650, although I cannot tell you why this is. Anyone?

Hi Christian,

That's great, the shots I have been sent show a side and stern view, but yours really sums it up, but will send to you of course. Odd the number is wrong, perhaps it could be corrected. Shame as I said she is "concreted" in but better than nothing I guess. Had no idea she was there until a top manager from our head office was at Chatham Marina and saw me looking at MTB 102 dates for this year on the computer! could have got more than just pictures but he was OK, and got the local manager at Hythe to photograph and send to me.

I wonder what happened to the mast, it doesn't look quite right without it.
