Although the strut running across the engine bay is different in my shot, everything else ties in. The running shot of the boat from a distance confirms for me the paint scheme/number and engine cowling vents etc. What do you think? Along the right lines??!!
You're right Nigel!
The two pictures of the engines room came from the same boat,the Bill Elswick's Thunder,former the last Roger Hank's Blondes,the IV(famous for have shoot a Hatteras in 1973).
After the CTC in 1978,Elswick renamed the boat John Player Special with the famous colours black and gold of the tobacco's brand,to race the World Championships race in Mar del Plata in december where it sank and disappear forever.
Elswick registered the boat Performer after little customizations like the new dash windsreen and new engine hatches.
