Re-surfaced Driver

One that has escaped the bonfire by the looks of it.It was the batboat of it`s day winning 5 races in 1966 in the largest CIII division,powered by 2 x 100hp mercs.Driven by Ian Driver and navigated by Brian Hendicott.Two heavies if ever there were.Was renamed Knutkrakker in 1969.Get back to putting that other engine in ASAP Mr F.Who is I.Driver indeed!!!Good job he won`t be scrutineering the plastic fantastic before you set sail.
