  20. The engine at the shadlow rally is the one that is about to be taken out of x FMC Trout ?? I think It was put in Tout in 2005 as we had there Last Lister JP for Monarch and is for sale along with a K2 they are about to put another Lister JP2 in her
  21. I would like to see those and I bet George would i will show them him He certainly takes a great pride in his boats Viv
  22. It was a Joke that Probably went to far in the end and George was threatened with being sued which was when he said his adress was the nut house at Cheddletion George was moored at Longport whilst Monarch was being done Puppis George had actually worked this butty when he was younger. It won the National as well it was a lovely looking butty
  23. I was with George last night a he was on about that story again and the man who used to own Monarch and the bullet holes that England has down just below her gunnels them what we call rivets !!!!! And the adrdress George told the guy to Correspond with him to was The Nut House at Cheddleton I think you will find it was a big wind up otherwise when you google it something would come up and it doesnt and nothing is registed on the small ships register there was a Monarch but not mine
