To my knowledge No Carson boat hs ever set or broke a World Record apart from the fastest run down Loch Ness in 1990 when the boat didnt make the final turn before coming to the bank. The Skipper had to throw it round so hard that the back broke out and threw the crew out resulting in one broken collar bone and an arm (I think) We were all too busy laughing.Alan P

Barry used to live next door to me - he moved to Hythe a couple of years ago.

Good to see what you've done to "Quickstep". She looked good (but big) on the drive about 10 years ago when Barry had her but was in a very sorry state when she was at Trafalgar Wharf up for sale.
