Fairey Marine Early ideas for the Atalanta 31

The 26′ Atalanta was a great success and Fairey Marine were considering a 31′ variation. There is a very early set of sketches and drawings, many signed by Uffa Fox, in the complete set of Fairey Marine drawings donated to the National Maritime Museum by the AOA (after Fairey Marine gave them to the AOA).

The pictures below are snapshots of some of the drawing which make interesting viewing. The 31 turned out different in many ways to these drawings. It is interesting to see the ketch rig drawn. An idea put into practice by A31-12 Peanut.
