Time to test the knowledge of you all!!
According to the 1999 Year Book 3552 was a John Turner Heaven Sent design built by Tony Lock. She was called 'Struck Lucky' and owned by Mary and Shaw Cooper. I have their address and phone number at that time. Please e-mail me if you want this information.
Memory a bit flaky but I seem to recall the boat being smashed up in a motor accident and Bill buying her as an insurance write off
Originally at Shoreham understand was rebuilt after mishap going around an iccy roundabout near Chi. Hence don't think she should be logged as a destroyed boat in year book any longer (was a few years back, not sure if corrected more recently)
So there's ANOTHER Heaven Sent around somewhere. I know the other 2 (Space Oddity 3544 & After Hours 3585) were both completed from Tony Lock's shells, both IIRC by Glen Truswell. If not destroyed but rebuilt and sailing somewhere does anyone know any more?
Having been in that car accident on the way to an icy snowflake event in Chichester I can clarify that this is all correct!
OK Thanks everyone. So we can confirm that the boat was written off. It seems Bill Kenyon bought it from the Coopers as a write off and may have rebuilt it and sold it on to Alan Robinson who appears to have left the class.
Talk to Chris Robinson (Alan's his dad)
I am pleased to say that it is still alive and kicking and is still owned by Alan Robinson!

Andrew, please might be a bit of an oddity, but the name is "Space Odd at Sea"!!
Sorry David, it's that Mr Bowie playing tricks with my memory
MR 3552 Sruck Lucky is still around at HLSC
