Forgecraft

I remember that Forgecraft when it was new !
Built in Alton, Hants, & raced in the 1980's, when we had multi-class offshore races, & class 3C (2 litre) was megga, with upto maybe 20 boats in that class alone.
Then that boat was blue, ('Absolute Beginners' ?), then green I think, before being painted white & raced by Tony Lewis of The RMYC for a season or so.
Being alloy she should be fine still, a good rough water boat !
