Every once in a while to opportunity arises
to view a collection of boards ready for some restoration work.
This week I was lucky enough to.
All four boards are all owned by the same person.
Barry Bennett circa 63.
Running man logo on tail.
Purchased new by the present owners father.
Shaped by John Monie.
Glassed by Dave Wilson.
Custom order by present owner.
Pulled in gun style tail.
The no 30 on deck @ nose.
The no 830 on deck @ tail ?
What a shame.
This McDonagh is completely
delaminated top and bottom.
The 2" balsa stringer has turned to mush.
It's still going to look good on the owners wall.
