I read with interest the data you have compiled on Deltic engine boats. During your pages I found mention of me, Mike Baker! I worked with Jim Thomas in Greece and changed a cylinder block and pistons. I would appreciate contact with Jim if he is still around. Also any work involved with the T18-37K engine is right up my street. I am 67 and now retired but still work 4 days a month for the overhaul of Deltics 9-55B and 9-59K engines for the Royal Navy.
Regards, Mike Baker
PS: I traveled around to all the Nasty boat location including Subic Bay in the Philipines and San Diego.
