Just realized That I gave the info on the MkIV and not the Mk5 sorryMk 5 Aluminum Assault Boat was originally designed by AE Freezer & co of Hayling Island and made by Fairy Allday Marine, seen similar hulls about mainly from the USA at boat shows, but not seen any ex army about in marinas, it's the one that could be locked together with another hull to make a pontoon and stacked up one inside another, we used to have 18hp Johnsons on the couple we had in JLR
This lake? Holee sheeit it's not even 700 metres long!I once got lost on a small lake in aldershot training area on one of those.
it was dark and the OC thought he was in control of the boat the boat commander thought he was Que boat being paddled in lazy circles in middle of said lake.
once took one to sea only to be followed by the RNLI out of morbid curiosity
Amazing how a picture can bring back a flood of memories, some painful, some awesome, some just wet, cold and muddy (in particular, if memory serves me well - the little inlet to the East side of the Lake!)
