Hello Rick,

 

Yes, there is a dukw in Berlin. Put an offer on it. Should still be up on Milweb. I put the ad there, but no longer work there.

I suggest 15k. If you are interested, I will send you the contacts and you can deal with them directly.

 

John

Hi John,

 

Considered it a few years ago, there were a couple up for sale on Milweb in the UK. But after visiting Bovington and seeing just how big the beasties actually were, I put them firmly on the back boiler on the list of things to do!:sweat:

Pleased to meet you John, You are a brave man taking on such a daunting task. I wish you every success and a great deal of luck with your project.

 

DUKW's are the absolute tops when it comes to fun and adventure.

 

Your scheme to sail the channel is the mark of a true adventurer, I wish you every success with that.

 

I was lucky enough to get an invite to crew on one when we sailed the channel for the 50th anniversary of D-Day.

 

A great thing to have done, an adventure I wont be forgetting anytime soon, and enormous gratitude to the DUKW owner for inviting me.
