A Long shot - Wanted Coventry Victor Midget

I know its a long shot as its not exactly Boatmad type stuff, but I'm after a Coventry Victor Midget inboard watercooled engine.

Its for my very un-boatmad like WWII Two-man assult craft, otherwise known as a Military canoe.

See below.

Hi.

I've had it 23 years so far.

There have been a couple on ebay but I believe they were Mk7's that are sail and paddle only, whereas mine has the engine compartment at the back and is a Mk9.

I only know all this as a book has recently been written about them by a guy who's been researching them for 7 years, he believes mine may be the only surviving Mk9 left, and maybe the only motorised one left. Its only because of his research and the help of some other friends I've discovered what engine should be in it.
I was going to put a modern engine in it, but it's turned out to be a historically important piece of kit, so I'll be looking to make it more original.

The NMM in Falmouth are going to borrow it for a few months and put it on display. Its 18ft 6 long by the way, and all Ali and Stainless steel.

Thanks.
I've already posted a similar request in their forum a couple of days ago and so far nobody has replied.
