Fly Guy

A small powerboat named FLY GUY was raced by Nobby (william) Nievens in the early seventies in the london paris dubonnet race etc, any info on this race or any races with Fly guy or shady lady or any pictures would be realy good.

Nobby would love to know whats happened to these boats, and where they are now.

Possibly ask Ray Bulman - he would remember Nobby, & perhaps know of the boats too ?
Flying Fish probably has pix too.

Yes these are definitely the boats.

any info on the whereabouts of SHADY LADY would be fantastic.

Nobby says it would be great to see the old girl once again.
