Cool Lord Lucan's 'Migrant'

Does anyone have a photo or brief history of Lord Lucan's 'Migrant'. I believe it is a Formula 23

Migrant

Lord Lucan purchased the Formula 233 Migrant as a replacement for White Migrant his Christina that sank off the Needles whilst he was leading the 1963 Cowes Torquay. Migrant was designed by the team of Wynn Walters but differed from the American version as the boat needed a raised roof to comply with the current regs of the CT. Bill Shand Kydd had an identical boat called Lucinda.They were single prop boats powered by 390 hp Daytonas.
Lucan finished in 6th his co driver was the motor racer George Abercassis.
There is a famous picture by Beken of Migrant pointing skyward after hitting a lrge wave it is to be found in quite a few publications but no pics on Grahams site although Lucinda may be there.
