had a mate who flew Herc's for the RAF; he said if we qualified for either Savannah or Athens he could "deliver" kit for us no problem.

Savannah, loads of bases within driving distance.
Ditto for Athens. Large US base just down the coast.
Plan was to drive the boats, car and support truck into the back and reverse out at the destination.
His CO and the air-boss were both sailors
