James and Al are at the historic dockyard in Portsmouth, “Saving Private Ryan” by taking a trip on an F8 landing craft. They find out about the history of amphibious landing capability from 1938, up to the the Normandy Landings and through to the Falklands War. But will it be enough to persuade ...

Some from around the site for you
F8 about to go for a dip from her parent ship, HMS Fearless. Image from the IWM photo archive, although no date mentioned. Unless somebody knows? ⚓️⚓️⚓️
Some photos of F8 for your interest. I was ship's company in HMS Fearless from July '76 to December '78. All the best with the restoration and preservation of this great little craft.
Thank you to everyone for making the trip round the Harbour memorable.
A very good set of instructional videos relevant to our work - I found the timber selection series in particular helpful.
Amazing support that will really make a difference.
The Swedish version of "Boats Afloat" :
Lovely view and a meal to match. Thank you.
A cracking visit to Boathouse 4 with Aussie relatives. Especially loved the displays and films covering the evolution of the Motor Gun Boats / Motor Torpedo Boats / Steam Gun Boats and clandestine visits to France during WW2 including the antics of my friend Carenza Wilton's grandfather Robert Hichens. Also to see traditional boatbuilding courses alive and kicking.
What an enjoyable visit to Boathouse 4 Restaurant. The meal was excellent and the service could not be faulted. Next time I visit I will bring Don Wilkinson with me (if he can tear himself away from the Golf Course)
Thanks to all the staff at Boathouse 4 and Russell, for making the Wedding Photography a whole lot easier on Saturday. Here are a few of the wedding day pictures for you.
Steam pinnace 199 in a bottle ! Just painted ready for the Gosport Marine Festival on the 27th May ........all that smoke and steam in an enclosed space cant be good for the crew .....
