Ah Graphspeed - I remember covering the bottom of GP14s with it back in my rag and stick days (a very long time ago). Expensive stuff, and I don't recall it making a whit of difference.

A quick Google seems to find many folk who agree that it never made a blind bit of difference! (Although I did also see a mention of a racing boat being disqualified when it was found to be coated in the stuff)

Here's an ad for it...

Needless to say, we've decided that just an ordinary, nicely done paint finish will suffice.

It was a passing phase, Richie, part of a mis-spent, wind-assisted youth. I've been all internal combustion for several decades now! :lol:

Nice to see the teeth back under the nose. They're one of those jobs we dipped in and out of for years - a bit of welding here, some dressing and filing there, then put them down for months on end. I could never find all of them at the same time, either. Was always convinced we'd somehow lost one or more of them but they've finally made their way back all safe and sound. Well chuffed with that.

They certainly do... and I don't think there's anyone who hasn't worked on them. I did the welding but that's where my involvement ended. Someone else did the rest before Rich made installing them his baby - a splendid team effort.

Bodywork is looking good and the daily pics are always interesting.
