From Facebook 2023, Thomas Stephenson "I bought the hull and deck complete from Doug Brooker in 1973. Fitted it out at home in Melbourne and launched February1974. Won Australian Half Ton Championship February 1975 at CYCA. Sold to a Sydney owner early 1976. Unfortunately someone added wheel steering at a later time; best thing you could do would be to remove this stupid mistake."
