BRI, I WAS IN THE real FINN, for 25 trips on and off, bri your old mate did he sail in the D B FINN. as Imay have sailed with him? one thing about her she used to lay down,to starbourd and in the messdeck there was a big porthole and when she went over one could see under the water, she only did this with the wind on the port quarter at full speed, when fishing she was a good sea ship, ps good model regards laurie. wx getting warmer,LOL.....
