    Default Shipping or naval forums and reserchers

    Gents
    Not really an exact RAF question, but it is related. Does anyone is aware of any quality forums or researchers dealing with small shipping, merchant navy, yachts, etc. including demobbed things like RAF launches? The period of interest is mid-1940s to early 1960s. I did a search myself, but the results were not promising, either dead emails or forums dealing with big ships only.
    Thanks

    Hi Franek,
    May be worth posting on the forum below:
    Coastal Forces Vetrans- they have data on ex RAF Launches
    http://cfv.org.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=13
    Data base here: http://cfv.org.uk/research/boat/database

    Association of Dunkirk Little Ships
    http://www.adls.org.uk/t1/

    Hope this helps, I'm also intersted in Shipwrecks and boats.
    Alan.

    Hi
    Thanks. I had a look, got an idea, and trying to verify it.
    I am also trying to verify some civilian shipping, small ships, yachts. Not sure where to look for registers, but expect them far and away. Internet seems devoid of such data, even search by name does not help.
