2010 Yearbook says it's a Phil Morrison designed September Girl built by Bruce Majer of Littleborough in 1974 and was/is called Ruby Tuesday.

The 1975 YB does show 2917 as a Phil Morrison designed Phantom Kipper.
The succeeding YBs until 1989 show the builder, B Mager, of Hollingworth Lake SC as the owner and in that year a new owner is recorded as C. Child at the same club.
The 1998 YB was the first to show 2917 as a September Girl design.I think this may have been an error that has been carried forward in the later books.

Best let Lou Archer know then so it can be corrected. How many others do you think have been change by accident over the years?
