know of a source? Answers via me and I'll forward. I'm aware of
the item recently for sale in England but that was not a complete
blister and not of use to this project.

- Thanks Bob and good to hear from you. I'm guessing here but I suspect that the Southampton contact was probably someone connected with the purchase of the hulk of our old VP-BPS that had the waterloop on Southampton Water. The blisters were more or less un-scathed in that incident and remained on the hull but it may be that they were for sale as a money-making exercise to finance the ongoing rebuild - which of course failed and the project was later sold in Ireland, still with blisters.I may be completely wrong of course.David Legg
