There's a "Classic RIB" forum opening up here. Oblivious to taste and decency.

Don't know how much I'm going to do on it, it's had a hard life so I'm going to take the engine off and spin it over to do the hull and replace the valves in the pods while they're off, already got a good plan for the new front pod, there's enough there to post some pics. Still don't know whether to keep it or flogged it, might just end up in the boatyard with minimal done for shunting boats about

At the risk of boring you I couldn't resist posting one more picture of "Blossom" during the occupation of Shell oils Brent Spar Buoy. She conducted most of the re-supply work while getting bashed around by she'll standby boats including having all her occupants blasted out into the sea numerous times while on route by standby ship water canons

I'll ask the folks I know that still own them and see if I can come up with a lead on a new nose for it.
As for asking Shell, I'll leave that to you. I'm not sure they'd want to speak to me. I'm not sure they ran any Task force boats either.
I did hear that all the plans and drawings for those boats were bought up after they went bust. Not sure who has them but I reckon it's possible that there will be a container or shed somewhere in UK with the bits you need.

Sorry mate, I'm not up for derailing Biffs Taskforce thread.
If you like you can PM me with any campaign related questions or maybe you could even start another thread and flame me there :-)
