Hi, the Dowty is a boat that I felt I had to restore. It is a bit of a labour of love, but getting there. I have modified some 'non visible' items, such as electronic ignition, but most is at it was.

I really am a fan of the boats and you guys in NZ are lucky to have a few still around. Here they get destroyed due to the fine engineering of the jet unit.

Thanks for your comments and any help here is more than welcome. BN

For the Dowty fans (and others of course), I have started a pictorial strip down and rebuild of my Dowty on my new web site found at www.oldspeedboats.co.uk please view and see what you think. It is in its test stage, but will improve. BN  :D :D

Dear BN.  I seem to have acquired a Dowty Turbocraft MK1.  Any chance of some pointers when I get stuck ?
