Maritime Heritage could be lost

Probably more suited to Boatmad as non rib related but worth a mention .
Surfury a Soni Levi designed race boat is about to be made homeless from the Basildon Boat museum . There is a chance it could return to the Isle of Wight as was built at Souters now Medina Yard .
She had a unique engine setup Sam Sara engineered tandem Daytona Scarabs linked into a single V Drive She was the most succesful British Iconic C1 offshore powerboat of her time .
For more details of this amazing peice of our Maritime History go to The boat needs to raise £60,000 to preserve her for future generations all cash greatly received.
