James and Tamera Stewart are in the process of restoring a speedboat from 'Thunderball'. The boat is a Buehler Turbocraft, Domino's speedboat in the Bahamas. The one she is diving from when James Bond fakes engine trouble and gets a lift.
After 40 years in a barn the boat was in a poor shape when James and Tamera received it, and some of the original interior details are lost. They are going to restore every detail as perfectly as possible.
The boat is completely disassembled and in the process of each piece being individually restored as shown in the pictures.
If you have photos and details that could help James and Tamera in their restoration, please send a mail to BMT 216A, and we will forward the information.
Do you have your own photos of one of James Bond's vehicles and want to share them with the rest of us?
You are then very welcome to mail them to us - and please send a few lines on where and when the photos was taken.
