Some pics of this years project. I purchased a rundown timber clinker on ebay ,once I let the classic boat boys know that I had it the information came flooding in to inform me that it had been a good race boat in it's earlier life. The hull was built by David Gill and raced by Bill Baberton with a 253 and later by P.Norris with a 202 .The boat was sunk at Melton and then received new bottom planks and keel, after repairs it was setup with a centre mount 202 for skiing .

Back in her heyday
