From memory Martin raced F3 and F2 with his, hard to say how good it was as with Ski Racing the boat is only as good as the Skier.

Give Martin a call he will tell you what its like and if it was his old one.

I take it you being sarcastic

The new deck looks like it was made on Blue Peter from a Kellogg's Corn flakes box.

Roofer you have good taste running with the proper deck!!!

The general concensus of people 'in the know', is that the new deck has insufficient upstand above the rubrail, and is generally too flat to impart any natural strength with it's shape.

K9 I think your right it was a bit unfair to say that Blue Peter made it......I'm sorry about that!

Wouldn't want the BBC chasing me for slander, not even Blue Peter can make shit that bad.

Yeah, joking appart, the new deck aint to everyones taste, but I'm sure as roofer says, Clive will make what ever you want, so nothing's been lost, whatever your preference.

I suppose he had to make a new version, to distinguish between a 'Baker' 18, and a phantom-uk 18, kinda drawing a line under the last builder, and moving on.

Its a shame he didnt just smooth in the screen and maybe round of a few of the square edges like steve did with the P21. That would have looked well nice

Yeah, the face lift the P21 got was lovely! really subtle, but looked cool.


I'd like to do a similar facelift to the 28

And these "people in the know" are?
Why do you need upstand above the rubrail?
How much more curved are the panels on your boat?
