    Ben Lexcens designs

    I'm sorry but that was not his design. Not only was the hull designed in the Netherlands but the construction specs where so poor that the boat kept breaking. John Bertrand coined the term "Bennyerism". Ken Beashel held the boat together. Fuck off!! Imogene??? I remember her as Apocalypse, but I'm not sure if this is what she was launched as. TUBBY Apocalypse went to Freo and became Fremantle Doctor, now in Geraldton I think, there was also another Lexen 50 called Apricot Sunday IIRC

    Can I borrow your login ? either just creat a (free) account or otherwise you can access the forums through the drop down 'features' tab then 'sailing' (or whatever you want) and you're in. Its a pain how the forums aren't accessible from the front page without being logged-in. t

    FFS Don get over it it's a digital world and anyone walking past can point their phone at your pile of shit and do the same better give Mr google 24 hours too or tell the world police they've (probably, unless you live in a cave) published a snap of your house from up in the sky and another from out front too
