Fairey side tanks

Post by PeterV » Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:31 am

Whilst sanding down the side tanks on my Finn I started wondering if Fairey made any other boat's side tanks in the same way. Their popular boats, such as Albacore and Firefly had boxy side tanks and I've only seen other Fairey Finns with moulded ones. I suppose the 505s might have been moulded but I've never seen one so I don't know.

I have always imagined that the 505s had the same....but like you, I have never seen one.
