Tracking down "HISTORIC'S"

A few people are actively engaged in tracking down historic race boats and one recent question concerned TRAMONTANA the winner of the 1962 Cowes Torquay, the one with twin CRM's 2000hp. Thanks to a Fairey Club member who has combed old Motor Boat and Yachting Mags the answer has now surfaced, She was outlawed by the reg changes in 1963 and was sold to none other than GIANNI AGNELLI the head of Fiat in Italy, he entered Ultima Dea in the 63 race.
Now we know this perhaps the detective work can begin.
