While looking at pictures of ships on the Cheshire & Chester web-site, I came across a ship that had T E Lawrence on board, while on route to Davenport. He played a part in the ship's construction, at the Yarwood's shipyard. It would seem that he had many strings to his bow.

This would have been during the time when Lawrence was in the RAF.

I believe when at Calshot or Plymouth he was also involved in a pinnace design associated with the flying boats of the period.

T.E. Lawrence a.k.a. Aircraftsman Shaw was indeed involved in the development of the narrow beam Sea Plane Tenders or 200 class, he was of course a "speed freak" and certainly had a Mentor or Mentors up in the higher ranks of the Military, a lot of information regarding his contribution can be found on the British Power Boats website
