Thanks Rosie. I've seen a few up close and personal. :)

Rob aka MM...over to you. You and Rosie shared the last one so you can go if you'd like.

I am leaving in the morning for three days so someone else should step in here anyway.

That means they either are something like a hovercraft (or boat/hydrofoil) or alternatively it is something steam driven which could be old which knowing your perpensity for collecting old things is more likely.  The T&E could be for the European Federation of Transport and Environment if it is something new but if old probably something completely different.
