Knocked up in the mighty borough of Penryn back in the early 90's by Messrs. Bloor and Kidd. They did pretty well on the race scene and the hardboat version was popular with tobacco smugglers. Mostly seen wearing an Evinrudes. The rib model was a 'Vagabond' and the hardboat 'Vulcan'. There's a Vagabond kicking around these parts with a souped up Ford Cozzie lump in it. Strangely, rarely seen on the water. Ah, just noticed that it's a 'Mirage'. I think that was a bit bigger than a Vagabond.

How do you know about the purple 'Cozzie' monster? I thought that one came via an unofficial route after Vector's demise. Having said that, someone had to tube it.

Vector Rib

Had a Vector the same make as this. We had a X.R.2 Race engine on the back. It was a fast boat and good see boat. The boat we had was the test boat for Vector Marine. If you want more info e-mail me a number to ring you. I had the boat for 4 years we worked a lot with O.C.R.A as a rescue boat.
