FOXTROT 8 was built as a landing craft assault and is a vessel of timber construction and had originally twin diesel engines. She was built in 1959 by Camper & Nicholson of Gosport.. She served in the Falklands cionflict in 1982. Currently lying in an un-restored and semi derelict condition, it is hoped to restore F8 to a fully functional condition with a view to providing the public with an experience of the type of vessel. Specifically and uniquely, F8 could provide an opportunity for wheelchair users to get afloat in an historic vessel.
