Lost Historics

I realise that many of you are not really interested in the old racers from the 60' and 70's but for those of you who genuinely care information just received from a contact in Gibraltar is not good.the following craft were used by drug runners and have been destroyed...
Max Aitkin's GYPSY GIRL
Edward Greenall's GEE
Tommy Sopwith's MISS EMBASSY (THE TURBINE BOAT)
SPIRIT of ECSTACY IS IN A COMPOUND IN SPAIN any one got a flat bed willing to save her?

That's a real shame about 'Gypsy Girl', that was a classic looking boat.
