45 ft Fast Motor Picket Boat

A 45ft (estimated) Fast Motor Picket Boat built by Thornycroft, scanned from Churchills Navy (Lavery, B., 2006).

(Note: largely resembles the 45 ft Fast Motor Boat & barge, but is twin screw. Early sketch? Need to find images to confirm existence.)

35 ft Fast Motor Boat Type II Admirals Barge

This barge is observed aboard HMS Hood and may be unique. It appears to be a variant of the 35 ft Fast Motor Boat Type II, but has a partially enclosed pilot position, an extended forward cabin and a different rear cabin configuration. This variant largely resembles the Royal Barge.
