Mick Archers` B28 is still for sale, rigged with twin XR2`s. Won the British Championships in 2001 I think and was 3rd in the 4ltr worlds. No canopy though. PM me if you need more info and I will give you Micks mobile number.

Those that are former raceboats are only outboards and probably doesn´t have a bilge either ?

I dont have any pics of Micks boat, but it is definately outboard. He may sell it without the motors and I do not know the length of the bilge. Sorry.

The 'play' version is semicanopy, side by side. Most others will be one behind if there is a canopy.
