The BLOWN SILLY gang are at it again with yet another cracker to add to their ever growing fleet. No Whiteley collection could be considered complete without the mega rare F1-11 in the mix so along came "SCANDAL". This controversial hull design was too fast for it's own good which saw them built in very low numbers after ruffling the feathers of fellow competitors ...'is it a displacement or a hydro?' being the common protest.
Can't wait to see this jewel once she's finished, cheers for the pics fellas ;)

                            ***If anyone recalls "SCANDAL" from her younger days please get in touch.
