Hi Richard

She's a Hustler 35 mk1 built 1970 designed by Holman & Pye built by Tyler Boat Co, Tonbridge and fitted out by Landamores and Co, Wroxham.

Definitely a SHE as all the curves are in the right places.

But then I'm biased!!

For a female hustler of 37 - she is definitely in good shape - good pedigree !

I used to visit Wroxam frequently - horrid little bridge across the river Bure to get into the town.

I had a house south of Blakeney - where I belonged to the sailing club - thus the reason for going

to Wroxham - occasionally would hire a Sabre in Wroxham to sail the broads

The Orion a signal monitoring ship - I understand there is a plan to replace her in 2 or 3 years time. The Ruskies didn't like her !

I wonder how may gallons of fuel she carries in that tank on the superstructure ?

Hi Richard,

You are well informed. Yes, she is due to be replaced and you are right, the Ruskies definately do not like her. A number of years ago she was rammed by a Soviet warship in international waters.

The "tank" was probably added to fool the ruskies into thinking we used gravity feeds for the main engines. In reality, it is an oversize beer keg!

Aye

Stephen

If the Ruskies found out that you guys stopped drinking beer in the 1700's and discovered your absolutely well kept secret that the contents of that beer keg was non other than a clear branvin that has been an absolute success since 1879 - then you might have more than a destroyer paying a visit !

Thank God you don't keep Scotch in there !

Richard

Hi Steve,

Far from certain but is this not the copy of the Bounty?

If it is, I bet Capt. Bligh would have loved the twin screws she is fitted with!

Aye

Stephen

PBY Catalina was the United States Navy designation for an American and Canadian-built flying boat of the 1930s and 1940s. PB stands for Patrol Bomber, with Y being Consolidated Aircraft's manufacturer identification. It could be equipped with depth charges, bombs, torpedoes, and .50 caliber machine guns and was one of the most widely used multi-role aircraft of World War II. Catalinas served with every branch of the US military and in the air forces and navies of many other nations. In the United States Army Air Forces and later in the USAF Strategic Air Command their designation was the OA-10.

PBY.jpg

There is a privately owned and restored version in Long Beach that lands at Catalina quite often. It has a pretty cool interior using the blister gunner domes as windows for viewing. If I had the money to throw away on an airplane, this would be the one.

Believe it or not, there is one on Sydney Craigs list in the middle of restoration for $1M...

Auzzee...are you in!?...$500K/ea.

http://sydney.craigslist.org/rvs/386337527.html

Apparently it was found being used as a house boat...PBY_house_boat.jpg

If you want to do something interesting, go to Google Earth and type in the coordinates:

32 09'31.18N 110 50'06.95W Zoom in

This was my playground when I was growing-up in high school.
