Need Advice!!!

Need advice! Can anyone tell me the name of the old alluminium powerboats that used to race late 90's. I believe that one may have been based in Jersey (Commodore ferries?). Are there any left in country, and is anyone looking to sell?

'Jupiter stationers' was the original 22' Forgecraft. it was raced by Jonathan & Richard as 'Absolute Beginners' before it was sold and renamed. I thought it was Derek Clemsons' tho'.

The second generation were a little longer, and quite a bit narrower. the last one (I think) had a strange vented pad bottom.

I think the last person to race 'Jupiter' was Tony Lewis in the Offshore 2000 series.

Yes!!
I had the P16 'Le Gopher' off Dave.
I realised my mistake not long after posting, but was away from the PC!!!
Does anyone remember the close finish between 'Alexi 'and 'Another Le Gopher' at the '92 2ltr Worlds in Swansea when Richard Lucas and Adrian Carter were running the boat for Dave. It was very close if it wasn't a dead heat.
