Original hull and keel were molded by David B. in Canada, to David Cook's hull design, but with different front deck. The hull was made from molds created by David B., who made himself a PP5. Hull was made 2015, in Canada, but for a multitude of reasons, including very slow Canadian Post to Australia, I didn't receive the bare hull till late 2016.

Porky Pig, (David Cook) has been a friend when we raced against each other sailing boats for wheelchair users called the Liberty.

Then five years ago, I moved to the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria Australia and I took up RC Model racing after 25 years since I built a Marblehead. I selected the IOM and became involved on this forum. Lo and behold, there is Cookie again and we renewed our acquaintance.

I liked his design of the PP5 and we talked about me buying one. Another David in Canada was building his own PP5 and pulled one out of his mold for me to build up. So Cookie is now an International IOM designer. I just hope my customised build does his hull design justice.
