The Midnight Special Humphreys 1972 son 1er dessin, pas de résultat! 2015 May, from Dutch QT Facebook: The first boat of his design to be built was 'The Midnight Special', an IOR Quarter Tonner which he co-owned with sailmaker Edward Hyde (of Hyde Sails). She seldom won races but was usually in the hunt with a frequency of thirds and fourths. Needless to say much was learnt. 'The Midnight Special' was built by dinghy builder Dennis Trott as a relatively early foam sandwich construction, with a glass laminate that would still be considered light today. There was much improvisation about the project. The engine was a Honda generator, air-cooled and very noisy but very inexpensive. The keel also came cheaply. A blacksmith fabricated the mild steel core of the keel for £40 and Peter Sweetman (initial helmsman of the boat) and Rob Humphreys cast the lead ingots in Sweetman’s garden. These were half aerofoil sections which were bolted on to the steel plate, the whole then being glassed over and faired. The boat was subsequently sold to American Tom Bibb and after a few years when he sold her on contact with the boat was lost. Fond memories are impossible to extinguish, but unfortunately the boat herself is believed to have been destroyed in a massive clearing operation in Burnham-on-Crouch. Like many boats of her day, unable to offer much in the way of cruising attributes, she had become redundant and was laid up ashore, taking up space that was needed for development. and this picture:
