For those members who followed RAF 206 with interest, I can confirm that she will become a major attraction under a flying boat wing at RAF Hendon Museum this May.

She is currently still moored on the south coast, and for anyone who may wish to to get a group together and experience her on the water for the last time before she comes ashore, please feel free to contact me at pclabburn@hotmail.co.uk

Hi there,
 
Ah, well pity she will no longer be afloat, appreciate she may well last longer under cover I guess, but still, better than not having her at all.

Great to see her saved for posterity.   I believe the RAF museum is still looking for a larger WW2 ( Whaleback or Hants & Dorset ) that is a "restorable".

I have just ordered 150 meters of African mahogany (planked at 3/4"  to be planed down  to 5/8") begin work on the sides of ST365.   It will take quite a while to do part time but  I hope to get the sides &  cabin done this summer.

Cheers
Don

We have bought for our sins a seaplane tender, built around 1942 but converted in the 50s to a houseboat.

Have started dripping her out, but is there a way to discover more about her (model and history) and do plans exist to download/buy?

41 1/2 foot with twin stern drives, has a pair of Volvo Penta 135hp engines fitted from the 80s.

The usual double diagonal mahogany hull.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Hello Mr Propos

Yes, the original identity can be found by locating the yard number. 

This number (probably 4-digit) is usually stamped on the underside of the floorboards, on the stem post and on the stern post.
