    The Vosper and Fairmile MGB and MTB were absolutely spectacular. It saddens me beyond belief that nearly all of them were scrapped.
    A reasonable German equivalent of the time, perhaps somewhat larger, would have been their " Boat", a quite formidable bit of gear.

    Oh, yes indeed. E Boat was an Allied designation though, or so I believe. Schnellebooten were indeed formidable. Not as fast as the British boats, but better armed. I can't recall if they had the 'silent' engines of the Brits for low speed stuff. Even subs were frightened of E Boats if caught on the surface. I never wanted one, though.

    Exactly right,..but there's plenty that listen to all the 3rd 4th 5th hand gossip around, my mate knows a bloke etc etc etc, & then it becomes gospel,...not to me!!....motoring journos are just as bad,.....if it wasn't an official LandRover statement, then I take no notice.
