This was built for Sir Robert Hobart / John Hobart using a Souter cold molded hull off the mould for Tommy Sopwith's TELSTAR and Mike Campbell's MELODRAMA.both Shead designs..the hull was then fitted out and prepaired by the famous Woodnutts yard at Bembridge.
She was powered by a 400 hp Home built Interceptor and raced in the1969 CTC...
