Re: 70' British Powerboat Company Co (former MASB)

This is the cockpit of MGB16, one of the 70' boats, from the collection of Peter Scott. His grandfather was part of her crew. The MASBs pictured in this thread are 63' boats and had a different cockpit area. https://www.facebook.com/groups/7179359 ... SEARCH_BOX

Right now, I'm working on the drawings for the 70' boats. Initially developed for the Finnish Navy, that country's alignment wi...

70' Higgins MGBs

I'm working on a book on the Higgins PTs and, as part of the material, will be addressing the 70' boats acquired by the RN as MGB 69-73 and 100-106, as well as the 81' MTB 270 and MGB 68. I'm looking for photos primarily.
