39' Bubbledeck "Popeye's"

Can anyone out there help out with any photo's, history of the Cigarette 39' Bubbledeck, formerly known as "Popeye's" around 1980, and "Fava Shoes" a few years later.
I now own the Boat - being fully refitted for the Cowes to Monte Carlo event next year.
Some of you guys out there can dig up anything - would really appreciate anything you can find out on the boat.
Thanks in advance...

Was it also known as the Halter boat?? I think maybe this livery was after the Fayva Shoes colours, but stand to be corrected.

Halter...

Yes, it was also known as The Halter Racing Boat.
Near the rubbing strake, which we have removed ready for the Boat to go into the paint shop, where the paint has bubbled / lifted in a couple of small areas you can see the dark blue undercoat of previous.
Also the Air Scoops, all face the same way - forward, unlike Bouty Hunter, it's earlier sister boat.
