Couple of pics from Lyme, Marshan 18 circa 1977, Phantom 16 1986.
Stuart Hutchings stood by the Marshan when me old man used to tow him. skied behind it when I was a Dauphine. Made a change from the Skitenders that we raced, having split the previous two, two skitenders went back to Shakeys in tandem after a race at Exmouth, both split. Ours and Stuart's dads. 85 HP and hands in front. Those were the days. Still kept the number as well. The name Demolition Squad came about after breaking the Skitenders. Still got the ski

Remember that well - was the first ski race I had seen - somewhere I have a photo of them as they came into the harbour - but finding it could be difficult!

Must have been very early 80's at that.

The hull of the inboard was indeed a copy of an Ilver made by Peter carpenter, He also made a copy that was #4 the outboard.(I did buy one of the Lazers, which ran of a few years as an injection engine, we later put carbs on it as it used to refuse to do more than 4000 revs sometimes during a race. Latter found this was due to a rev limiter in the ecu!)
Peter spent a fortune trying to get the inboard to run right, he sold it to a Guy at Stone called Vince who used it for a few years for club racing, ) It was then owned by another guy at Stone called Matthew Cary, as i remember it blew up the first week he had it, I think it was rebuilt buy a engine specialist called Ken Dawes, (also Stone member). after this the boat disappeared until the next time I say it was on the bank of the canal in versel about two years ago!
The hull had a problem with the transfer of fuel from the side pods to the center holding thank which is in the middle at the rear, there was (or is) a blockage and fuel would not transfer from on of the pods.
At one point when Peter was having detonation problems it was thought to be due to fuel octane rating, he fitted (cant rememberer the right name for them) but they were the metal anodes/catalysts that the world war 2 bombers were fitted with to make the run on cheap petrol, they were said to boost the octane rating of the fuel!
It was thought that one or more of these came loose inside the pod and blocked the fuel outlet!
Nicky had a couple of bad falls behind this boat, on one occasion she fractured here skull, son after this Peter called it a day.
Good luck ! hope his helps
