1960's model- auction acquired for not much- restored
« on: June 04, 2018, 02:23:47 PM »


Three years ago I acquired this model at a local auction house for 30. It was in a terrible state, metal work manky, deck boards not visible, hull manky with a hole in the bottom. I spent a winter restoring it to what you see now. Now fitted with a low drain 500 motor and a sound system. My own custom made ball raced prop shaft. It steers very well forward and reverse and in fact has allowed me to win the club steering competition for the last 2 years. Why Lady Diane? my wife is called Diane Elaine and it keeps her happy!
One of our club members who knows about these things says it was produced as a kit by the company that pre dated Billings. Can anyone confirm what it is please.
