Humber or Beneteau? It's a bit of an oddment... can't say it's an oddment that particularly appeals to me, either. Just looks too front-heavy.

it says its a humber destroyer, it looks like a humber destroyer and its got a humber hypalon badge on its tail end...odds on its a humber.

Bit of weight in the front end but they do run better with some weight there-think that may be just a tad too much. Would like to see it/trial it for real to see what potential there was for a proper job being done on one-or if that indeed is a proper job
Strange--- "location chichester" but description says its in channel isles

Thanks

Really, this would be my first rib and I no nothing about fibre glass etc, would this be a DIY job?


Would it be a matter of carefully cutting it off, sanding it down and gel coating over the top.

Regards

Mike
