Hello there,

As on a machine, take the opportunity to wish fellow forum members happy Christmas and best for 2018, noted on new tab post re MGB81, worth a look and have watched the engine removal, quite a job, but great that she is receiving this attention....best to all,

Hello there,

Not sure if members have heard/seen but latest Facebook post from boat house number 4 has news and link that MGB81 has been taken ashore at the Berthon marina/yard at Lymington for extensive replacement of frames and stringers and a pair of new engines, up grade from existing units, lighter and more efficient plus more....great news, trust will both secure her hull for the future and make her more usable and economic to run...sure the intention, do not have links which would be a good thing, perhaps clever minds than mine may sort! but all good, best to all,

Johnk

Hi there,

Not sure if any one will see, but great BBC news item on Facebook on CMB9 showing Bob Morely the owner showing reporter around whilst on the hard standing, believe Bob's own yard there....

Hi there,

Seems a lot of me on this forum...but just seen on the RN-CFV button news that HDML Medusa is going to take part in the new Dunkirk film by Christopher Nolan, great photos of her lift out at Saxon Wharf also, so stay tuned, believe should be a year? before release. All the best,

Hi there,

Just seen posting on What's new tab of the newsletter for the guys restoring PT 305 in New Orleans, what a fantastic job they are doing, great to see for them and their CF history, compliments as ever the great work being done here, hope for news of RML 497 to Portsmouth soon, all the best.

Hi there,

Just reported on the RN-CFV that John Lambert has crossed the bar, very sad to hear and my condolences to his family and friends.
