Anyone got any info on these super little boats please ? I am in the midst of restoration and would love to hear from anyone with pics or stories. Mine was never allocated to a specific ship and was decommisioned in 1962

HMS Belfast has a fully restored skimmer on the boat deck which you might like to look at; if you are too far away let me know and next time I visit the ship I will take a load of pictures of whatever details you need. I visit frequently as we have a project with the ship.
