Except that in 1968 it was "Flower Child" 2062 crewed by Peter Morton.
2nd that year was David Potter crewed by Dougie Brixton I think.

Hurrah, thanks David. I had the ST trophy in my possession the other year and the crew was missing for that year. From memory it had Beat Nik down for that forth year in a row, but perhaps you used both boats that year. I will make the update.

No it was Flower Child all the way and I doubt I'd have had it enraved Wrongly and I would be surprised if I left Peters Name off but then Maybe I didn't get it done, maybe it was Alan Warren or the secretary.

Dear Ross,

Laurie Smith's crew was Andy Barker at the 1976 Championships, not Andy Baker

Possibly need to amend GT & OT Nationals 2009 to "Let it Ride (mod)" if you want to be pedantic .... he he he

Good work Ross.

Andy I think all Let it Rides were mods, none of them are exactly the same.... ;-))

But BAU is considerably different, not the same shape at all.  NSM2's are not all the same shape either, both Jon Turner and Laurie Smart made their own tweaks.

From what I understand my old Let it Ride was tweaked just about enough to allow Spud to build it without paying royalties. It is still down as a Let it Ride though.

I think all designs vary from builder to builder and no doubt again when they get repaired later in life.

There's definately a plaque in 3550 that says designed and built by Rowsell & Morrison............

I quizzed Spud about it last year and got a 'blank' look and something along the lines of 'don't keep records that long and memories not good these days'!!!!

She is wider at the transom than the other Let it Rides John as I am sure you have noticed. She planes well and you can really get her going on a Spinnaker Reach. I am sure Spud knows nothing about how she ended up so close to a Let It Ride!!

I am looking forward to seeing her on the water in July. Still miss her.

Salcombe Week 1961. Was it 1277 Splinters or "Spilinters"?

SPLINTERS Robin Fowlers previous boat 1063 Gollywogs got wrecked by a Greenline Bus in a road accident,hence the name.
