anyone know where she is now?

This is my first two litre design and would be interested to know where she is now. Last time I saw her she was bright orange and called the 'Creative Native' - belonged to a guy on the Isle of Wight and it was then sold to someone in Portsmouth.

Has a few good memories as I won the European championships in her!

Took a lot of p*** taking for the sponsor though!

Some time ago now - but best speeds we used to see from her were in the low 70's running an old QSS prop! Believe best we saw was 73mph.

She was pretty light and had potential for more speed. Certainly learnt a lot since and I think I could get her running quicker now.

Picture was taken racing from Allhallows on the Thames Estuary.

Just incase anyone has come across it in the meantime.

A shot of showing the boat with cockpit changes. The colour was changed after this to a more orange / red colour!

Could well do - have a new launch early in '09 where it would be good to get some others of my boats along. A new 23' race / pleasure sportsboat and looking at doing the press thing etc.

Will keep you informed.
