    Great to hear from you. This is the plate on A124 Helene. Sorry for poor quality, zoomed in on a much broader photograph.
    The sail number is printed in the bottom right hand corner.

    Does thinking about builder plates mean anything with respect to Mara’s restoration?

    Cheers

    Hi Robbie,

    Here is a photo I took a couple of years ago of Hiran’s builder’s plate. You can just see A95 stamped on the lower right.

    Regards,

    Hello Robbie,

    Just to say that serious moves are afoot to have a small number of replica Builder’s plates manufactured.  Don’t know what the cost will be, but are you still interested?

    Hi Simon,

    Don’t have the plaque to hand – away at the engravers.  Will let you have the dimensions when I can.

    3D Printer engraving sounds interesting!
    The dimensions of the plate for A124 are:

    112mm x 38mm

    or, in Atalanta speak, 4.4″x1.5″

    Cheers

    Builders’ plaques update.  I have taken delivery of a modest number (only 5) of replica plaques.  They are not identical, but as they’ll never appear alongside the originals, a blind man on a galloping horse etc etc…………..  They are not cheap, but then I didn’t expet them to be given their exclusivity.  I’ll contact those who have said “Yes please” and see if they are still interested.

    Aye, Mike
