Chico seems to fit the bill better than Rania; LOA 73ft to Rania's 45ft, and more importantly a 16ft beam rather than R's 10ft 3". She also instinctively "looks" right (I had noticed that before this correspondence). Chico has an interesting history some of which is on her website. On 31st May 1940 she took 1000 men off the beach at Dunkirk and out to the larger ships. Next day she returned home with another 100 men aboard. I like the photo on the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships site showing her twin Lewis gun mounting. Just think of the carnage Mr Jemmerling could have performed with such a mounting on Pterodactly.....
