Queen's Birthday Storm Ferro Design

Hello, Some time ago, there was one of several discussions of ferro cement yachts on this forum. A member named Alan Wheeler appeared to know the identity of the ferro-cement yacht that survived the Queen's Birthday storm, and mentioned that the boat had been pictured in the Hartley designs catalog. I would very much like to identify the design and if Alan Wheeler or anyone else out there can help me, I'd really appreciate it.

And, by the way, I have no desire to start another of those interminable threads on whether or not ferro yachts are good. There are good and bad representatives of yachts built in all materials.

Thanks ahead of time.

John P

You can find "wheels" at crew.org.

Hello nonam,

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, I don't understand it. Who or what is "Wheels?" And there are dozens of crews.org on the internet. If you could spare the time to further elucidate, I'd really appreciate it.

Cheers,
John P

Re: Queen's Birthday Storm Ferro Design

Wheels is the online handle (name) for Alan Wheeler. There should be only one crew.org as names for websites are unique and not duplicated.
