any info on this boat?

hi,

does anyone know anything about a ring20 called 'just a mirage' known previously as 'asitic' on guernsey

was owned from new by andy priaulx and his brother (and from articles i read on andy possibly raced)
i now have this hull and am thinking of setting it up to race in place of my 'the magician' ring 18

have been told a few stories that it was laid up as a light weight hull but has had repairs over the years. iv looked closely at the hull and it seems to be in v good condition with no indications of any major repair.

if anyone knows anythin about this boat i would be interested to know.

I'll ask my dad about it, he used to do a lot of fibreglass work for the Priaulx's hillclimb cars and Graham's boats, so chances are he'll know it. I remember it from when a was a kid, I've killed a lot of braincells since then though so don't know any details!

on the same theme, what about R21's: Positive GII, Professional III and R20's of past years, where are these now? I see Tickled Pink is being restored and Scruffy Yuppy keeps reappearing. Does anyone know where these are?

Whatcha, I have the Yuppster! Not sure what I am going to do with her? Had her up for sale at the beginning of the year, but I have not been able to find the right boat yet and after the last couple of races I am now getting very tempted to invest in a new motor and to sort her out?!! Saying that everything is for sale at the right price......

I sold tickled pink about a year ago to a couple of guys who work at Boatworks+...

They seem to have slowed down with the work on it at the moment, I think they had brought another boat as a donor for the engine etc. Nice to see the pink on the sides again!

Jeff Fox is Foxy's brother.
Funny enough he last raced the Crusher Destroyer project thirteen odd years ago with a 225 Yam and a 26 QSS-old Skool
Before you get onto it I know I spelt Skool wrong Andy but done for impact.

By anychance was the name changed to geronimo? As me and my brother barrel rolled his yellow r20 bout 6 years ago, ripped the top deck off and the side of the hull was ripped open from bow to stern.

Hi Steve,

That'd be great if you could, I take it its on VHS? Could I drop a tape down to you some point to record on to?

PM me if easier to arrange something. Cheers!

No worries RE the spelling... I'd have also accepted - Skule / Scool or Schule

Is Foxy number 2 going to try and race this season then? Would like to see how it goes
