You had to look carefully at the Show to see the whole number of clever ideas. Ian Cadwallader had gone with the new standard Ovington decks – smooth front and back. Easier to repair (much) and holds no water! ….Well, that would cause a riot on our boat – quite a short riot as our man slides gracefully straight over the side!!
Steve Goacher had gone the other way. We all probably know that Ovington will offer a non slip centre panel on the foredeck as an option. Steve Goacher though added a special feature – some texturing back on the stern tank. They wont have altered the mould so this must have somehow been cleverly done afterwards. You might have to look twice at the photo to actually see it!!
