    Can anyone help me prove that the boat I own is 2927. This boat was last used at Datchet I've been told according Graham Brookes who brought the boat passed it on to me. He cannot remember the contact details for the person he purchased her from. I asked for and received a new certificate which stated that the boat was all GRP. This is not the case as it's composite. The FF ASSOC records show it as being a Naylor claimed also by Windeback composite. I can't find a builders plate. Where would the sail number be on the hull. This boat has a dark blue hull and sapele becks. Can anyone give me any history about it or a previous owner come up with a certificate that I could send to the RYA as at the moment they will not change the one issued. Any information would be very helpful.
    Thank you.
    Cheers Alan Williams owner of 2927?

    Hi Alan, I have the original measurement certificate for GBR 2927 here at FF HQ and it definitely says Hull and Deck from GRP, and I am fairly sure Roy was building boats much earlier with GRP decks. However Roy did supply hulls to Graham Edwards and Dobsons to finish with wood decks. I have no idea where Roy's records might be but you might be able to trace through club records of the various clubs where your boat was sailed, or even if you we to search out the records from Edwards or Dobson.

    The sail number will be engraved on the bottom of the boat in the middle check fore and aft, there may be a builders plate located behind bulkheads.

    Interestingly the FFI register shows composite (grp hull/wood deck) so one piece of info is wrong somewhere

    Now have done a bit more digging and between 1996 and 1999 a flying fifteen 2927 was Spanish National Champion in the hands of Michael Clough we can ask him what happened to the boat after 2000.

    Hi Keith
    Thank you for taking the time to help sort this out. The colour of the boat is a French Navy Blue not dark blue. I'm confused by the Windeback claimed Naylor comment on the FF web. Did Naylor deck Windebacks and are they still in operation?
    Once again thank you for the information.
    Regards Alan Williams

    I don't think David did deck Windebanks but I could be wrong, he is a boat builder and they tackle most things. He is still around but doesn't do email and I don't have a phone number. I will be speaking with David McKee next week and I'll ask him as he might know

    The identity of the boat has been established as 2923. The information on the register is wrong. That for 2927 is for a composite boat when in fact she is all GRP. 2923 is just shown as being a Naylor. I now have the original certificate for the boat from a previous owner who tracked it down. Thank you Keith for your time. 2923 will be hitting the water when finished by Kevin Gosling, we are going to go console less. Hope to meet with you in due course.
    Regards Alan
