Random old boating pics

Hi all, i have a small collection of photos from when my dad was alive(pre1990) showing some fun on the water.
LPW, Easy rider 2(fairey huntsman?), little rib and some racing photos from probably Guernsey 1987.
hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I believe it's still in ownership by the same guy since at least 1986.
