If you have some time this afternoon, can you help me find out more about this boat (see photos)? Do you recognise it?
I bought it a while ago as a 'do-er upper' project, but being realistic, I know I'm never going to get round to it. So, I'm keen to find out more about its history/provenance before I pass it on to someone who can give it the TLC it deserves. So far, this is all I know/have found out:
- Sold by Avoncraft in 'kit' form in 1960s (possibly in 5 pieces?) to be put together by the buyer
- Once built, it qualified as a 'Class 3' racing boat
- Made of wood veneer over fiberglass to keep it light and give it strength
Thanks for your help!

In the 1970s my school had a boat that was known as 'the Class 3'. It had a nice-looking plywood or veneer deck and a FG or painted hull. I don't think it had a rudder, and I don't think it had the 'kite' shape like yours. As far as I remember it was easier to paddle than the Espada. I always wondered what Class 3 was.
