I am the secretary of our boat club
and about a month ago I was notified by a member of the public that he had found the superstructure
of a model lifeboat
on his way home in the Basingstoke area. I now have that superstructure
in my possession but asked around all our members
and loaclly but no-one has any idea who may be the owner.
It is from a 1:16 scale
Tamar Class Model Slipway boat and the build
quality is pretty good standard but it has suffered some damge but I do also have the some of the parts
. It appears that it might have fallen from the back of someone's trailer behind a car, bike or mobility scooter - yes some of our older members
now take their boats to our lake that way. However the Model Slipway boat is 1000mm long and a beam of 320mm and with motor
would weigh quite a bit. The superstucture of the boat is named but I will hold back on that information until hopefully someone can come along and identify it as theirs.
So if you know anyone who might have lost it near Basingstoke, Hampshire (Southern England for those who might not know where this is) please get back to me.
