Does somebody know the french AC10 FRA 27 owned by Damien Apriou ? She was GBR 261 before.

I'd like to have the history of this boat. I just know that it is a Razorback converted to AC.

Regards

gilles IC226.

Hi Gilles, I built the carbon shell for GBR261 in 1995 for the owner Andy Gibbs from Hayling Island. I assisted him with the home build & sprayed her yellow, he named her Top Banana. I converted her to AC in approx. 2000 & she was one of many AC's then sailing at Hayling Island SC. I think she went to France a few years later. Not seen her for years but glad to hear she's alive & kicking, cheers, Rob.

thanks rob.

Are you shure the shell is carbon made ? The actual owner says that it's a moulded wood hull ... ( "bois moulé" in french ).

If it has moulded wood shell then it's not GBR261. 261 had a carbon shell & plywood decks.
