[QUOTE=Virtual Insanity;123338]. she was re-rigged with a single b.b.chevy and raced successfully from 1985 to 1990.

The boat was rerigged to take twin 200hp Suzukis and was raced until 89 when DGS and I won the UKOBA National Championships in Cruiser Class B
Did about 60mph through anything

I'm confused. In 89 there were two Flying Flippers racing. DGS and Simeon in the outboard powered boat (subsequently campaigned by Dick Martindale as Obsession) and Webby in the single big block boat.

Which is the one for sale and which one was Henderson Doors?
