Having spent many days down at Hamble Point ( Faireys yard) and talking to Peter Twiss ( Marketing Director and world air speed record holder)) with my father who was P.T's observer in WW2. Flying Swordfish. I conclude that most of this thread is BS.

I'm not sure which elements of this thread Limey considers 'BS'? 'Coz it's fact that I'm on the lash with a mad Irish bird this eve and I'm pretty sure that Willk's not BS'ing about his Pops doing his bit for freedom.

She was equally as dismissive of me in the case of the single handed yachtsman.

Perhaps its really simple, Limey Linda might just be a complete pain in the arse.

she's not actually a fairey but a souter, we did a total refit, everything out, we put it all back in properly and with no seatrails other than a few trips up and down southampton won the round britain historic class, not bad for a 40year old boat, not bad for our merry team of boat builders either, she has her own website at GEE185 ave a look

Maybe she's confusing days spent at the Fairey yard with years spent with the Fairys at the end of the garden?
