Classic 50' wooden sloop 'Steelhead'

This yacht was in Larnaca harbour, Cyprus, in the early 1980s, sailed by the builder/owner and wife, names Allan and Pauline Pudsey. They had to sell due to ill-health. The boat was a rarity at the time, a newly built traditional wooden cruiser-racer (mid 20th century style) conforming to the old 8.5 metre rule, 36' lwl approx., just over 50' loa. Main structure was Iroko laminated with Phenol/Resorcinol resin. I worked on the boat when she was building and have often wondered what happened to her. Does anyone know?

With thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help.

John Kimber.

Re: Classic 50' wooden sloop 'Steelhead'

Hello J Kimber
I am trying to locate the family of Allan Fawcett Pudsey and wife Pauline, are these the same people you mention in this message regarding their yacht in Cyprus?
I know that Allan F Pudsey died in 1999, no death found for his wife. Last address was Bourne, Cambridge.
Can you help me please.
