Robert: What a superb project. I have only just stumbled across it while looking for news of IOM yachts which I currently race. But in my younger days I co-owned a fabulous half-decker that was the proposed prototype for an Oulton Broad One Design, a cross between a Waveney OD and a White Boat (Yare and Bure OD). She was built at Oulton Broad towards the end of the Second World War but was not accepted as a class by the Norfolk and Suffolk Yachting Association because in the hands of an Olympic helmsman she won races against the Waveneys and White Boats. Watching the build of this model brings back wonderful memories of planking and replacing various wooden bits of our full-size yacht.
