TD has some pics of it after some sort of collision, mebbe RTA, looks pretty sad, and that was 15 years ago, it also got dropped by a crane driver somewhere along the line.

Yeah, twoz the very first race deck 28, built alongside OCL Suzuki for the '84 round britain.
First hull out the 28 mould was Mike Bellamy's cruiser deck version (nicknamed the 'blue whale' by the phantom staff due to it's less than streamlined appearance usually associated with the marque)

Nice avatar Loz!
We've got Miranda here at the mo, she arrived today with my luuuuuvly U.S. S/S tow hitch and two Aronow books, 'speed kills', and 'Blue Thunder'.

The hitch pin lock is made by Smith & Wesson!...go ahead punk, make my day!
Talking 'Florida turkey' with her has prompted me to book my flights to Miami for the boatshow in Feb going on the 15th!

My bootie:

I was gonna check, but assumed Steve was driving in this pic by his unmistakable beard!

You need the Cutler bumper sticker for that weapon.
Don't like my driving then call 1-800-BIGHT-ME

Say Hi to Miranda from the Bellarmo's

Have read the Blue Thunder conspiriacy theory Nice Book. I recon the Grassy Knowl and the magic bullet theory are in there some where.

the video im on about i think was a kind of small local documentry on phantom, starts of with drawings of boats and steve, then his father at the family farm talking about the passion for a different type of boat then a shot of a silver grey early 23 phantom ,then a short clip of the 28 red brut going round britain etc going hard at a head sea around a point somewhere, brill clip i borrowed steves tape around about 92 or 93 when picking up a 21 phantom
