I think you can see the Icelandic/Faslane one on Google Earth in the town of Hafnarfjordur. I'd like to see some film of one of these things docking itself.

The actual boat is at what passes for the Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine. I'm sure if you spoke to them nicely they'd let you have a close look.

Sailor Radio

No probs Sparkie, thanks for trying anyway. I've seen the other on-line manual, but this doesn't give the info either, and refers to the manual I described which is only issued to workshops.

Sailor VHF

Thanks, but unfortunately that is the 'owner's manual' which doesn't tell you how to program a channel into the set, only how to select it once it's in. Willie G may be able to send me what I need.
