Nice shape to the hull you've got there
Looking at her flowing lines and curves reminded me that here in Bridlington on the east coast of the UK we had similar RAF boats used for air sea rescueback in the 60's and 70's
The RAF kept two boats at Bridlington if my memory serves me right and there were large maintenance sheds with a slipway at the top of the harbour.
The launches were regularly hauled up the slip on huge yellow painted 4 wheeled cradles and I spent many a happy hour with my friends playing under the hull and marvelling at the flowing line and studying the huge bronze propellers
RAF 1383, 1387, 1389 and 1390 were based at Bridlington in the 1960s.
1392 was the last RAF pinnacle to leave Bridlington on December 8 1980 to make way for the new air sea rescue helicopters still based at RAF leconfield near Driffield.
These lovely boats have been missing from the harbour scene for years now
but the slip and sheds still remain and are used by cobble owners to slip their boats these days
You can just see the shed doors painted blue and slipway to the far left behind the yachts in the above photo of Bridlington harbour.
I'll post photos of RAF 1383, 1387, 1389 and 1390 if I can find any on the web
