Dowty Jet Boat
« on: October 26, 2012, 01:32:56 PM »
I have now launched a new eb site called Dowty Jet Boat, recording the progress of a strip down and rebuild of one of my Dowty Turbo Jet boats. It is a work in progress and has a lot of data on it.

www.dowtyjetboat.co.uk

Please take a look and let me know your thoughts and ideas.

If you don't know where to start... start somewhere, the rest falls into place.

Sadly not that one. I have a drive full now and that one has hardly any original bits on it, but thanks for the info  :D

it does look quite sad with a turbo diesel lump thrown in it, but it still looks quite 'do-able with lots of tlc ?? :-[

Any classic is worth the attempt.

Hi Mark, yes I have seen it and I have permission from Pathe' to access it, but it is now widely available, but does show the boats well.
