i think that these class o boats were maybe just a push to far for an allready fragile industry. all were taken on by some of our countrys best skippers and still they died. some a very undignified one at that lyin rotting in a breakers yard or as a common sayin we have adopted razor blades!!!!

I think she had almost 6m inserted midships to enlarge the fishroom Darren. I think it makes her look more balanced instead of slightly squished lol.

She was originally 30m but now measures 35.9m

i thought westro was 34 metres when built ,maybe if the red photo was more stern around i could see the length of her better if that makes any sence

i would agree the photo makes her look like she has not been lengthened, just a good paint job i think.
