I have the Vic Smeed model plans somewhere - I could find them if needed.

I checked on the interweb and found a few articles about the Magga Dan and it seems she carried a De Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver high wing plane which could also be used as a float plane.
If you blow Martins picture up you can just see the floats.

Hope this helps

If you look at Martins pic you will clearly see a helipad on the stern  %)

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Magga Dan become HMS Endurance? The one before Polar Circle.

  This was fitted long after the Smeeds plans as the awning framework wouldn't have been strong enough to support a chopper.

Reference my earlier post it wasn't the Magga Dan that became HMS Endurance but the Anita Dan.
