My understanding Ian Cutler sold Heavy Metal and it went to Italy in the winter of 1995 after the preceding Europeans in Rimini that year. Was a fun event, 1.3ltr was for a European Cup that year. Not sure what happened after that with Heavy metal.

They are vare rare as there were only 4 C Class and 1 B class boats made by Richard, so you might have a search on your hand for one.

That was the first one Jonathon raced under Absolute Begginers before Richard built another for him which was sponsored by Tuffnells which then became Brut 33.

No - think yours was the Tuffnels boat?

Before you it was John Billington, before that Max Walker, Jeremey Watts, Jonathon Lucas

Could be wrong though as a long time ago.....
