The Original Bat Boat.

If anyone can scan & put it on this forum, I have a small brochure for the 21 foot Batboat, sold by Alexander Hyslop & Partners, of Langley Wood, Redlynch, between Southampton & Salisbury back in the 1960's.
It was a single stepped mono, of 21 foot OAL, with a single Chrysler IB 210HP running on a shaft drive, & looked like a minature Thorneycroft CMB of WW1.

They were built in Woolston, Southampton, & a relec was last seen at the old Husbands Shipyard slipway, Marchwood a few years ago.
Previously it, or another hull, were lying abandoned in Willments Shipyard, Woolston, back in the 1970's.

MB&Y did a pull-out report on the boat when it first came out, but like many interesting schemes, it faded into obscurity.

Cheers
