Sorry....don't quite understand the question....

Is this writing on the plate?

GP14s not really my thing.

cheers

I think the bottom of the plate had the address of Bell Woodworking but it is obliterated and I would like to know what it should be - last word may be Leicester?

Bell Woodworking Company
Braunstone West Service Road
199, Narborough Road South
Leicester

I dont have a scanner here but the logo on the front of the 21st Edition "Home Boat Building ....made easy" (3/- or 15 n.p.) is something like this
<b>
<font size="2">THE</font id="size2">
<font size="3">BELL WOODWORKING CO.</font id="size3">
<font size="2">LEICESTER     -     ENGLAND</font id="size2"></b>

There was another address, Bell Woodworking Co, 153 Parker Drive,
Leicester LE4 0JP. I do not know if this one was used on data plates. The one Neil posted is the one that was used in the pegasus literature.

Dunno, my GP is a R R Sills boat. That is getting pretty illegible too, though it is also branded on top of the centreboard case too. Is there a classic boat builders/kit suppliers list somewhere out there?
