So it wasn't copyright theft, they just decided there was no need to pay for it, basically, they claimed they'd never actually sold any. I sent some pics to Phantom of the 9 metre Tornado, in use, out in the Solent.
Although they admitted in the end that they'd made some, they still messed Steve around for ages and never actually paid anything!
There was no charge for the original use of the mould, just royalties on 'boats sold'.
