Sounds strange for a sea-going vessel, but the two central warships for the Coastal Forces Museum, MTB’s 71 and 331, have already had a peripatetic life on land before their latest journey to Priddy’s Hard in Gosport. They’d ended up at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton, another branch of The National Museum of the Royal Navy, stored off the main site in a large hanger housing stand-by exhibits. So a long journey by road beckoned, and not an easy one either – as anyone who’s ever been to the West Country on holiday knows (don’t get me started.) As they were both very non-operational and well stricken in years, sailing round was absolutely not an option. David Botwinik and I arrived ready and primed to film them en route. We knew it wouldn’t be easy. And it wasn’t.
