Wreck Success!

Obviously a problem is raising its head……then the inevitableCan anyone identify the make of this half submerged cruiser circa 63/66 for Charles….. it has padding on screen and helm could have been an early raceboat, other clues it is an inboard and has matching wheel and instruments a la Teleflex,Evinrude etc…

OK THE GRAPEVINE HAS BEEN WORKING IN TOP GEAR AND THE ANSWER IS……

Tag Boghammers 1965 entry Neptune 23 powered by a single Chrysler 425…there was a second Boghammer entry a 27 powered by a single Daytona 470 but this did not start…it is believed no 106 Neptune started sinking close to Cowes….all we need now is a picture of the boat in the correct position …anyone help there?  please. BOGHAMMER  will of course be remembered for his other entries in 66/67 the aluminium BOG BAT’S…Speedy Gonzales and Shall we Dance (the Swedish version of which I cannot find)

Recognise her?

Originally Yellow with twin Rolls petrols…then Purple…owners both titled and regular racers from the start….

Max Aitkens DRONE which became ULTRA VIOLET….found in Yarmouth by Terry Allin and restored..new cabin and wheelhouse apparently built in 1990 …….another for the Classic Rally.
