Hi all, MR 3279 has just appeared on eBay, anyone know what design it is-ant thougths about the boat? (I dont like the look in the one picture with it being dragged up the gravel for de-rigging!)

It's an Alan Jackson built Bad Company. An excellent lake boat of it's day and will be well built.

I think this used to be Jacko's own boat . It was certainly very quick in his hands on the river. Mr Biddle and I used to enjoy watching Jacko's white knuckles trying to hang onto the tiller downwind in a blow - I seem to remember it took both of Jacko's hands to keep it on the straight and narrow. (Bad Company's were a bit lively in a breeze) Jacko was quick in it though! And yes it was very well built indeed (and pretty).
