    Thanks,
    pity someone changed the middle window on both sides ... probably for more airflow as the original don't open?

    Hi again,
    I guess what I would really like to find out is if she was a factory built one or two of, or if her plans were available to home build.
    If anyone could help, besides contacting Holman Pye guys, I am missing the interior fold out table that clips into the bulkhead in the upright position.
    Anyone have that drawing perhaps?
    Thanks

    Hi once again,
    With all due respect ...
    I guess no one is actually interested in the fact that I may have stumbled upon a classic one off here?
    I really would like to see even one photo of a sister ship....... anyone?

    The Twister I gave away had that table, built from mahogany. I don't have any drawing of it but I could get some photos of it if that's any help. There is a Twister Association in UK that seems quite active. They would probably be able to help with some of your questions.

    Thanks Rick,
    Pics will help a lot.
    I will try the twister guys as well as Holman and Pye.
    I don't see an email address for Holman and Pye on the web though, if anyone can help with this?

    Thanks in advance.
    Lawrence.

    I was wondering if this is the only one of her kind as I cant seem to find any pictures or info on the web of any others.
    Lots of twisters for sale but nothing like this.
    She is still in good condition and I am smitten with her.
    Somebody said earlier on in the thread that there was only one built?
    The story I heard from the previous owner who heard from the previous owner that she was built for the then governer of Mauritius, along with a sister ship, in the U.K.
    I would love to try and trace her lineage, possibly through maritime records.
    Any thoughts on this ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Lawrence - I have just come across this post.

    There was one counterstern Twister built in the 1960s in Australia - Samiel - I will try and attach photo. And I understand at 3 in Uk / FRance - as per this info from Twister Association UK :

    "There is one in that was built in England [Eulali] and two were built by a Jean Raymond Harel. Orion - last heard of in Mauritius and Bleimore last heard of in Reunion."

    Eulal;i was mentioned earlier in tjhis thread and if you GOogle you will see that she's recently had some bow repairs. I presume yours is one of the Harel boats mentioned.

    I have a "standard" Twister - strip plank Oregon.

    Cheers

    Greg

    Doesn't look so good somehow. A bit "pregnant"!

    Is there a question, plan, or notion here?

    Might that have been an effect of the RORC/early IOR tendency?The hull,at least the canoe body,isn't too far removed from this Hustler 30 that came from the same office a few years later.
