Tony good afternoon,
I also would be keen to see a pic or two of this boat.
I and a friend built one at 6 ft in the middle 70s, 2 off Cmb 90s power. . . Surprisingly (not) it didn't go as well as expected.
Regards
Rob

Yes. It was me who posted on there.  It was my father who built it. I have been looking for this boat for years. It would be great to see some pics.

Hi Paul,

Many thanks for the link, great to see the boat and the associated engine, etc.

Marcus - the boat looks fabulous and how fantastic that you've managed to find it after all this time  :-))

I have had no response to my PM and no reply on here or O&R forum so does any body know the current owner? Perhaps give him a nudge for me. Thanks.
