    I was getting there, slowly. 'There' being finding the answer to your rather engrossing question; "can you guess who it is ?".
    I did not mean I was getting there, in response to your post "I wish you were there that day".
    :) Hope that clears things up.

    No. I'm not MZ. Don't you know he no longer enjoys the sensation of throttles, preferring halyards and such? He's getting old I guess... :p I'm just another prematurely gray friend who's spent some time hanging around with you, MZ, some goodwill ambassadors and other assorted characters! :cool:

    Powerboats graveyard

    Hi everyone
    it is sad to see the old racers in this situation but remember they were pure out and out racers whereas from the 60's to mid 70's they were designed to race under strict rules especially for the legendary Cowes Torquay Races.

    My interest? well I was fortunate enough to be gifted by Don Shead, racer/designer of repute, Tommy Sopwith's first Cowes Torquay winner "THUNDERBOLT" which I have restored to historic original. Not a luxury yacht I know but the forerunner of most designs around today who owe their existence to Ray Hunts talents.
    She appeared at the revived Earls Court Boat Show December last year and is now awaiting a search for sponsorship/benefactor to assist with her re-engineering.
    If anyone is interested please go to www.classicoffshore.com and see what we are doing to try and save the sports history in GB.
