Hi ChrisF,


Pics were around 6 or 7 years ago, just before I sold her  :((

I can understand your sadness, that looks to be in lovely condition.

I think that the Huntress is the prettiest of the full open cockpit Fairey Marine boats.

We had a Norman 20 and a Fletcher 15, nowhere near as grand!

Has Aerolite glue lasted longer than Cascamite?
We used that to build the frames of our PBK
canoes and I used it on my Bell Woodworking
kit of my GP14 built back in 57 and still sailing
I believe.
