Hi
We are in the process of restoring a 1926 Thornycroft boat she still has her original Thornycroft RA4 Petrol Paraffin 30hp engine but no hull ID number. We think she was built as an open launch and at some later date converted into a cabin type cruiser.
she is 28ft long and has a beam of 7ft and a draft of 2ft 4inches.
it is also possible that she may have been part of operation Dynamo as we believe she was in waters in the south east area, but all we have for ID is the engine number. her name at present is CloudIX but we think this is not original. She also spent some time on the Norfolk Broads during the 80's and 90's we have photos of her in Richardson's boat shed in Stalham. Dose anyone now if Thornycroft kept records of which engine numbers went into which boats if so were can thse records be found. If anyone has any info or knows of Cloud IX from years ago please get in touch any info would be gratefully recieved cheers

National Historic Ships UK (NHS-UK) is an administration financed, free association which gives target guidance Do My Coursework for Me to UK governments and neighborhood experts, speaking to the interests of each one of those in the notable vessels division.

I am going to cruiser and steel narrowboat. Furthermore I will assume that you are talking about a narrow beam GRP Cruiser. The best dissertation writing service writers to stuff for boating writers also describe the camp on services to participate sea sports.
