Default Dry Martini 1983 Miami

Does anybody know the story behind this boat? I was at the Cougar yard in 1983/4 and was told that this was a bit 'hush hush' for some reason. It's an Excalibur hull going by what's on the side of the boat, but I was wondering who owned it? Was it ever raced? What became of it?

The only thing against it being a racer are the 'small' exhaust pipes. My curiosity stems really from the exact match of typeface in the name - the same as on all previous Dry Martini racers. Does anybody know if Davey Wilson reads this forum? He was racing in Europe a couple of years before this shot in the racing Martini monohull. Would he possibly know the answer??

Post this over in the excalibur section, and I bet you could get the story on it.
