I have been looking into the Stebbings of Burnham article on the blog and wondered if any one else has looked carefully at the photos as if you look at the transom I think
the shape is slightly wrong, and there looks to be too much rocker in the area of Station 4 according to my eyes.
I visited Halls yard at Walton on the Naze about 5 years ago and came across what I think was a Flying 20, and I am wondering if it is that or similar we are looking at in
Recently I tried to track back the boats I had built and how they had fared, I was surprised how successful they had been particularly in the light of the attack made on
them by Open Circuit sailors !
