Hi Martin, any chance of a link? Am genuinely interested but all I can find is a link to Facebook (tentatively apart from usual AIS trackers). Last time I saw something like this it was a salmon farming barge of sorts.  Don't think this is though.

Hmm, thanks Andy.  It looks not that small actually.  Will do some more digging later.

OY mate - when I asked you to print these plans 1:1, you didn't tell me your printer was slipping half way through a print.

Bond, this is M, we just heard that that dastardly Blowfelt has made another two part boat, the front is in harbour in Norway the back part is out at sea overfishing so they can ransom the EU.

And of course the production of the engines is environmentally friendly. All of the remainder of the Corvettes are
recycled.
