In 1965 PanYan and Boffins Coffin were both Glastrons on the race competitors list so seem to be two different boats.
In the Putney Calais Putney Race Pan Yan Came first and Boffins Coffin Came Third.

Im also sure I read somewhere that Boffins Coffin later had a Mercruiser150 inboard but I can't find the info !!!

Further to that in 1966 Boffins Coffin Changed to 2xMerc100s
Kings Favourate had 2x Johnson 100s
and Pan Yan had the 2x75 Evenrude Format

I guess it was one of those boat that remained the same name then! Thanks.

Thou for some reason i have a number 12 in my mind on Boffins Coffin when was 11/12 years old i helped my father prepare the boat for another repaint! I thought i uncovered the #12, clearly thou i always remember the name in the same place as the Grahams 1967 picture.

Your Russell Junior!

I couldnt remember Lens name last time we spoke about your Puddle i thought i was talking to Len.

Has Len handed the lake down to you guys then? I am sorry i cannot remember your name. Is it Scott?

Can you ask your Dad if he has any old photos of Boffins Coffin!

Illl have to scan some old photos of her as she was in the 70s and 80s.
