My Volgas.

Post by DES » Fri Aug 27, 2010 3:04 pm

Hi! Georg this is the foto of my Wołga number 1 as i bought it. As you can see its modified and for now i dont now her history. Only i know from the man i bought her is that first she was used by the polish counterinteligence in mid '70s (and modified) ,later used as fast military patrol boat on closed sea areas of polish firing ranges. Under the white paint there is a rubber-like green paint with can be military.
Like always- sorry for my english.

Hi,

Thanks for sending these Photos. I can only see 2% of a Volga front and a little bit (excuse me) of your filled blue jeans from the 50%back(?).
the second picture shows you have nice wings... old volga, which is nicer! The rest I don't see...

Hi DES,

I am really surprized when seeing this boat. It really looks like no Volga I have seen! It reminds me a little bit of the
USS Monitor which was used in the American North-South war. Very very unique boat. I think they closed the deck
for spring, autumn and winter use.

P.S.: Your English is good and there is ''Nema Problema'' with it. We all not speak English perfect.

Thanks for Your understending for my english. Maybe I should install some cannons on her :-) Seriously, she will be used in firma for fast sea fishing/diving base and for hobby- as fast troop carrier (for combat divers too). I'm planning to paint her in something like this http://1.1.1.4/bmi/westsidespearfishing ... %20127.jpg . Ad some smoke dishargers etc. And i'm looking for photos of military-used Volgas. I heard some rumors about Spetsnaz Volga.
