P2000 URNU Vessels
« on: November 26, 2017, 04:04:30 PM »

Hi,

Does anyone have any photographs of the propellers, rudders and A or P brackets? on a RN P2000 craft?

Regards,

A quick google turns up this;



There's not too much out there, shame really as they're nice boats (although highly under-engined!). They do get put ashore in civvie dockyards, I'm almost certain I've seen one in Gosport Marina. They do irk me a little though when they constantly pretend to be warships when the biggest weapon they usually have is a breadknife.  %%

Thanks for the photos, just what I wanted to see.

I was on the the original design p2000 in 1986 but engines were governed to 24 knots removed 40+

Don't knock the bread knife! Steven Segal was lethal with one once  O0 :}

They are quite sleek, and armed with a couple Miniguns would be quite nasty in the right circumstances.

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

Hi


I have had a word with my Son in Law to-day, he doe's not have any photo's of his ship also he doe's not know any that is coming out of the water soon, he did say you could try the dock yard at Portsmouth to see if they may have the detail's that you need.


All the best

Also the vast majority have now been re-engined by us now to CATs replacing the RR CV12s with new shafts and props
