I'd say it was an old admiralty HLD.
About 52ft long, with a Foden Diesel?

She looks similar to my late Uncles boat seen here after a wee bit of TLC. http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/193774/title/ex-customs-cutter/cat/516

Hello, I think you will find her 52'6". pretty sure I lived on her 1960-1965. My Father extended the wheelhouse.

Hi Harry, my Sister is in London at the moment. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind if she could see Oregon? We all lived on her in 1965 and she could offer you some more information on the boats history.

Kind regards
Matt East
