I'm now the proud owner of MR 2404 which has been described to me as being a Star Rocket or a Moon Rocket. Beyond that I know nothing about it, apart from the fact it seems to differ from every other MR I've ever see by having totally built in buouancy. was it a good design, or just competent or a total dog like the Adur 8[?] or did it never prove itself?davidh wrote:Steve,
Space therefore has to be made for the real gems - boats that moved the class forward, from the Mike Jackson Sugar Plum (help, I'm on a run, how long before we capsize!!), the Jones Xpectant, the mike Noakes Star Rocket, the Debenham boats, Hugh Welbournes King Louis....
as for this particular boat, aside from the fact that it's a Wyche and Coppock and built somewhere about 69, I know nothing.
Some enlightenment would be good!
