I'm sure this is old ground, but I assume therefore these are the boats on the front of De Graff Trailers brochure.

I got me scanner cooking at the moment. it usually takes several attempts.

By working plug, does TD mean that actual boat got wet in testing before it was waxed and a mould taken from it?

Actually, i've never been in one.

a pal raced an 18 (shortened 21) in 2 litre OCR (Kevin Jones) don't think it was a world beater.

Nick is an old mate of mine

So where's Paul Hicks now? He used to be Bournemouth based, indeed he and I built 5 or 6 23ft Frodes at the airport in the winter of 1991. With limited success it has to be said, we also built Frode's 34 cat ...
