Clayton Lushay has emailed with more news about the hull illegally dumped in Pennsylvania, USA, believed to be that of A97:

A while back I had notified you about the 26 that I had previously owned being in an illegal dump. This last week I was able to get up there and take a look at it. The boat has been stripped and it is so rotten that it is well past saving. I appreciate the clubs concern and I apologize to if anyone had wasted time trying to find out nore about the boat. i love the boats and still hope to have another one someday soon.”

Many thanks to Clayton for taking the time to track down the remains of A97, and let’s hope his wish is soon fulfilled!
