I've been away from the fleet for a while, and missed all technical developments.
Drooling over the Salcombe photos I saw this mysterious bow design, which looks like vast chunks have been chopped off. Or is it just a trick of the light?
John Fildes' boat.
Drastic surgery to reduce the weight of a heavy hull. Not to all tastes John readily admits :)
So it is class legal? Wow.
I'd love to see another photo, if anyone happens to spot one online?
I reckon I could grow to love it. No different to those chopped-off transom corners on Shabazzle and others...

It looks quite like an RS300 in profile. I do have some video footage of it from last week, which I will get round to editing and uploading at some point.
If you go to Merlin Revival Fleet on FB there were a number of images there of 3585 (After Hours) revamped.
