found this on a Salcombe Facebook page - owned by Mr Watts and crewed by Mr Ted Bowdler or so they think - anyone know anything else about it?

Giovanna 555

Picture is the Hunt Design, GRP Hulled boat of 1963/4/5 etc. Originally 2 Perkins, then 3, then back to two !
She was "replaced" by the Tremlett Miss polly Perkins (Green Hull, Orange Deck), also No. 555 for the 1968 Round Britain.
Giovanna is still with us, but much altered.
She is pictured on our COPC website (www.classicoffshore.com) with her new-ish fly bridge etc, & has been restored.
The fate of the 40' Tremlett is, however, unknown to me.
