    Apparently there has been a spate of thefts from out buildings in the west so far 15 boats have been stolen seems they are only after motor vessels best make sure your outdoor model rooms are secure, and of course well photographed for insurance

    Sounds an odd subject but at a recent model show that I was at went up there with she who must be obeyed and lost one wife not very tolerant to boats, Then she met up with like wise suffering wives,then came back all rather tolerant of the hobby is it a omen or a fluke?

    Yes I suppose it was it shudder to think of the recoil did to a boat of that type would have sunk almost anything firing that low down she only had the two main guns a top deck light guns they only built one and that was lost in special operation other small spec write up there is no other info about it

    The forward gun was a 88mm fixed all way down to the keel part of the structure of the boat would become own small boat clean out of the water

    I have searching through old naval prototype records they seem to come up with some odd ideas a gun boat type with rear multi firing gun and bigger deck gun using a sub type gun and that would have kicked a punch the power source was three petrol engines this was all part of the development of the Perkasa type
