The main hull was made from two Tornado hulls, cut at their widest point, and seamed together end to end. The buoyancy bag you see was to prevent a capsize to windward (I had a far cleverer method worked out, but the owner/builder didn't want the extra expense!)

This boat used an inflated polythene kite, by Keith Stewart, of Melbury Osmond, Dorset. It was a real performer, and when filled with helium, could fly in no wind at all. Pre-dated Peels by ten years.
