This one is ex-contract but I am not sure whether it is ex-RNLI / ex-MoD?



We've had it sixteen years.

Thanks. It does look like its been through several wars but that's nothing to do with the MoD!

One of these? Still has the 17" shaft and large splash plate, Rubber electrical output on the side, the coolant passes across the top of the carb and a few others. No immersion proofing though.

Still going as strong as the day it was built.
