Hi Whisper - I'll check out the other pics I've got of those two as I was in negotiatons to buy one of those from him in July 2011 and he sent me some info, the seller had them both on eBay but he was asking way over the odds at the time as he got them direct from RNLI disposals. I think at the time Mart on here PM'd me some history but I'll check.

Can you post any current pics of yours? Is the transom cut down or straight across?

[edit] - yep, 132 was the top one and 137 was the bottom one (transom not cut down).
