Good evening chaps, detectives wanted in the Southampton/Portsmouth area. Just discovered within the last half hour that it is BELIEVED that this vessel, built 1925, ex O 191, which I last photographed in Brixham in 1983, may be a houseboat in the Portsmouth/Southampton area. Knowing you lot out there, (cos I know you are good at this), I expect confirmation within 24 hours, followed by photos in the gallery........seriously,if anyone can confirm, it will really help with my BM database, regards to all, Trev

There is a member called John Feltham who lives in the Portsmouth area Trev. He regularly posts photos (occasionally of fishing boats). It maybe worth sending him a PM on the subject.

Any chance of getting a more specific location Trev.
I'm up that way in a couple of weeks so I could get some photos if I knew where she was.

Hope to exchange photos with him as well, he has some great ones !! Thanks for your help Martin, much appreciated, Trev
