Yep! The boat was built very light, and wasn't glued together very well!
First race out the sponson skins decided to detach themselves from the main hull.
After repairs etc. we did a very rough 110 nm race in Guernsey, every time we hit a wave you could hear the stringers go "ping".
Sadly I have no good memories of that boat.
On another note, strange to see those 1995 Cowes stickers in the Ebay pictures.
I based the 2008 Round Britain "Passed Scrutineering" sticker on that design and used the same printer!
