Thanks all

I now know that it was one of the Waterbird #711 Rings of Jim Cramphorn. There were several orange boats but just one green one and one yellow one (mine). He was fitted with 2 carbed 2.5's. The boat was build to be a twin Mike Ring (labeld with TWIN in the end) and probably rigged by Phil diamond (worked later for cyclone boats).

After it was Jim's its sold to B. Clapson, member of Stone Watersports who continued to race it for a few years in support races.

Then it was sold to Wildcard (dutch member), he rebuilt the whole boat.. And now Its mine!

I don't think Jim had a green Ring, that was BoatMadder's "all steamed up".

Well, not that it really matters, but I thought the green boat Jim had was the race deck P21.

It all seems like a long time ago!

No, Double Trouble was from the Varne club in Kent. It was a ski race boat, powered by a pair of 225 Yams but not one of Jim's.

Your right Reb, there was a green Waterbird.

Unfortunately we never made it to the Jersey Europeans.

Just checked, 'Double Trouble' was not an ex-'Waterbird'.
