The later Faireys, late 70's onward, are GRP I've just read. Google.

I like Fairey boats, Spitfire heritage with a racing pedigree.

Very nice, I'd love a project Huntsman or similar.

As an aside, were Fairey Marine and Fairey Aviation the same company?

My Mother was PA to the MD of Fairey Aviation in the early 60's, and I remember some old leaflets etc in a cupboard at home when I was a kid that showed various wierd planes and also some shots of boats.

Basically, yes Nasher. Fairey Marine was created from Fairey Aviation in the late 40's as the demand for planes decreased for obvious reasons.

Don't forget Fairey winches which no self respecting LR owner would be seen without in the 70's.
