(111) Surfury

1967 Daily Express International Offshore Powerboat Race - Cowes Torquay Winner

with Charles & Jimmy Gardiner and Ivor Verlander

Built at W. A. Souter at Cowes, IW
Designed by Sonny Levi

So sad to see daily pictures of this Ionic and Historic Offshore powerboat stored / locked away from the public eye in a shed near Swindon.

It is owned by the National Maritime Museum

Question is why it is stored away from the public eye ! Could she be relocated to another museum or perhaps allow a private collector to at least keep her in condition or maybe fully restore her!

Is there someone, who knows someone, who knows someone that may know of a way to allow her to be released for everyone to see.
