Ring 21 'London Bitter'

Does anyone know the whereabouts of this boat ?
Originally fitted with 2 X Merc 200 in 1979 . Boat was moulded in an unusual colour Olive Green. Unusually it had cable and pulley steering , very direct and terrific 'feel' , golden yellow upholstery and black anodised fittings. I only built 3 in this colour I know where the first one is....cos I last saw it drifting with just 2 feet of the nose out of the water, heading towards the Needles...

I was swimming at the time!


O happy Days.


Mike

I am nearly positive that I mate of mine (Slippo) has a photo of one of these boats hanging on his lounge wall.

I'll drop him a line and see if it is and if he has any info on it.

Yes in all but the R/H pic, that was Colin Coupe IIRC in Penarth in 1998, the L/H and centre pics were from Allhallows in 1998 where we took 1st overall in the support race leading from start to finish and everybody else kept falling off
