Topic : MR 922 - Information wanted

I'm looking for any information anyone has about Merlin Rocket 922. Stories, photos, results, past owners, anything really. The with the aid of Fran (thanks Fran!!) I have so far deduced that it is a Tequila, was designed and built by Jack Holt in 1959, and the name is Capriol. I bought it from Chris Balmbro at Tamesis a few years ago and have been rebuilding it since and would now like to collect some information about the boat.
If anyone with information (no matter how vague) could get in touch I would be very grateful.
Many thanks

Apologies for the multiple posts, I was getting a big error message (Type mismatch: 'fiddb') when submitting and it looked like it was not working. Could the webmaster delete the other threads please.

The 1962 Year book shows the owner as Wing Cdr R. E. Havercroft at Tamesis S C and in the 1963 YB the owner is D. S. Scarfe at Cookham Reach SC. The 1964 YB shows the owner as D. W. C. Allen and in 1965 he was at Thames SC.
 The boat seems to have had many owners in the 60s. The 1967 YB shows another owner N. G. Impey at Thames SC.
In 1970 she was owned by E.A Shields at the same SC.
The following Year Books show no change until 1994 when the owner is shown as Arethusa Venture Centre, Lower Upnor, Stood, Rochexter, Kent.

Thanks everyone for your help. Managed to put together a nice little presentation on the history of 922.
