Hi David,davidh wrote:Hi Luke...I'll be brief as I don't want to hijack what is otherwise a 'good' thread! Later this month, if not then, sometime in Feb, I'll be interviewing both Jon Turner and Richard Parslow for the new Merlin Rocket book and I am sure the subject of Seventh Heaven will come up time and time again. Come June..............Blithfield, I'll be able to give you the 'inside' track. Of course the boat was also the basis of the grp boats, I'm already in touch with Simon Bagley. But in the meantime, if you have a picture that I can use, I'd love to see it!
Like you, I too have a Smokers (the hull picture on the Merlin Rock Book Facebook page is mine...3025, Smokey Bear)
Am looking at the trip North already...... be good to get up that way, then home via Hollingworth Lake!
Thought I would move this here.
attached is the only picture i have of Seventh Heaven. I will take more when I get chance just a bit tied up with Uni deadlines at the moment to get her out.
The trip up sounds good, if a little epic in proportions. I should know if I have got approval from the committe for the event tomorrow/thursday.
