A5's new Python drive and prop-shaft 2

Made a mtg for the python drive from 19mm Ply /Mahogany and 2.5 mm A4 stainless..

A new propshaft from Clements  engineering made from Duplex

with couplings for conversion from 3/4″to Python drive. Furlough work sadly coming to an end  back to work on the 6th April.  I will try and get the Iroko engine bearers fitted before my return to work. At least I can weld up the water and fuel tanks when back..  Roll on Summer.

Anyone know of an Atalanta moored in St Mawes Harbour in 1964 just seen it on Murder Ahoy a film staring

Margeret Rutherford  as Miss Marple.

About simon

Boat: A5 ** Interest: My father purchased Diaphony in 1977, having just sold Our Lysander 17 called Grebe and with two adults and three kids and a dog it was decided that we needed a bigger boat.Having looked at a few boats my father stumbled across Diaphony A5 at Chichester marina on its trailer,after a while the owner finally clinched the deal with my Father in a pub at Dell Quay . After a year spent renovating A5 she was ready for launching at Chichester .The boat was sailed for the remainder of the 70s and early 80's having crossed the channel many times ,she was returned home for minor work and hasn't seen the water since. ** Location: bucks ** Country: GB

    Fascinated by the glimpse of an Atalanta in ‘Murder Ahoy’ – how far into the film / details of scene please and we can do some investigation.

    Cheers
