    As an aside I Rebuilt this most of last yr The only Bugatti Hydroplane from the 1930s a world record breaking boat 1500 cc supercharged 8 cyl . This project gave me inspiration to finish Diaphony.

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

  1. Your Furlough is being very good for Diaphony at least. Great to see so much progress and glad you got the information you needed for the spreaders.
    Nice colour for the engine too!
