More Solo geekery

I have been putting together a family tree for FRP Solos, based on the Solo Register (linked on the home page of the blog ). This is really geeky stuff, I know. For example, The very popular/successful Winder Mk2 is originally a Speed Sails hull design. And the Boatyard at Beer Solos were partly designed by Jo Richards, also responsible for the Laser Pico and the RS Aero, among many other boats. An obscure Y&Y article delves into the B@B Solo features. Anyway, if you want to take a look this link will take you to my attempts to trace the various moulds and builders from the notes in the Solo Register. I hope it is a bit helpful if you are buying a secondhand boat.
