A few Hints...
The Beak was already the norm to stretch a smaller boat to be eligible in the 60īs.
Steps were used in 1930īs and 40īs in Torpedo boats, I got one 800 yrd from me here at display even.
Fabio Buzzi I recall did help Reggie... and then there was this one guy who actually started the whole Company...a WELL KNOWN Racer himself and Reggie was just a helper.
like I Said .. I give credit where credits due.
