Yeah probably. surely someone involved has it or one of those first built boats for posterity.

Atlantic b512: first saw service with Lyme Bay in 1973.

But I sold it last year so probably doesn't count. :-(

I still want to know what fate befell Psychedelic Surfer though...
Yes so would I ?

I know RNLI Hartlepoole lifeboat station had the first wood hulled Atlantic 21 to go on service which was just about the same as the Psychedelic surfer except with a few extra mods .

So my 1984 hull is actually quite new!

It's been re-gelled as removing 20 years of antifoul made a bit of a mess, but Hull / transom & toobs are all original (and the toobs are showing it!). The A- frame I think isn't too far behind in the age stakes.

Atlantic collage & Avon had a close working relationship

Avon first exhibited a 13 ft or 4 metre wood hull rib (searider )at the 1967 London boat show ,

Avon Grp hull Searider Rib was then exhibited at the London boat show 1968,

Interesting info! Cheers. Though that still negates a 1961 boat. So '73 still winning.

Atlantic College

Came across some old Atlantic College photos whilst reacquainting myself on the time-scale of the whole thing.
