First Comics Batboat? / Not much going on yet but stay tuned

It is still too cold outside for further work on my Batboat so I don't feel like posting much but still have accumulated lots of interesting facts and photos to add.

Especially about the original 1966 Adam West boat and mine.

Should be warm enough to start fiberglass repair soon, however. Working on my Batboat will motivate me to blog more. Can't do much with the vessel now.

Until then, here is an interesting image I just found on my hard drive. Could this be the first comics appearance of the Batboat or, as the Police Cheif calls it, the "Midget Man O' War?"

Could this mean the Batboat originates from the UK? Click the picture to enlarge it. Along the hull is painted "H(er). M(agesty's). S(ervice). Batboat"!

Anyone know which issue this is from?

Another Batboat mystery for me to solve!
