Hi Griff
The thing about this boat is the amount of period pieces that survive the window winders you can see in the picture wind down the top half of the window, and they all work even the chrome is good. I think I am becoming an "Anorak" Scared

Barry the thing I find interesting is that yours is the only ‘premiere’ I have ever seen varnished, when new as far as I know, they all had white hulls unlike the foams and stars (bar one of the later) which were ‘brightwork’.  On the other hand the interior would have been gloss varnish rather than white.  If you want to be truely authentic then you will not fit Powlecraft badges as those were reserved for private craft and I suspect your boat predates the adoption of the name anyway.  Smile

Hi Bill
Thanks for the input.
Craig has kindly sent me a picture of her at the 1959 Boatshow I presume Earls Court and if he allows me to I will post it on here, but suprisingly she has the Powles Craft script on the cockpit coaming between the fwd canopy stanchion and the fwd bulkhead. The interior I would agree and gloss varnish is the way we hope to go but without the head lining just cream gloss on the new strip planked cabin roof.

Ah Bill,

I beg to differ on that one Sir. I have photo's of 3 Star Supremes all whilst in the hire fleet and all clearly showing the 'Powles Craft' badges on the cabin sides.  Two of them are showing the Stars on the Aprons as well - And I've just about given up on finding one of those  -  Griff

Hi Griff, happy to stand corrected I only mentioned it because when the Star Glories came out in ’63 they originally had them and quite a few people thought they were rather ‘naff’ I’m afraid.  Ah, the Star Glories they were really pretty boats, shame they did not have the drop sides to the wheelhouse.

To be honest Barry I can’t really remember whether the premieres had head linings originally I think possibly they did because they were the modern ‘bees knees’.  Certainly more expense to hire than we could afford at that time so for us it was a case of drooling from a Foam or alpine star.

If Griff you talking about the metal star on the bow then I suspect finding one of them would indeed be like looking for a unicorn, same with a Collins diamond.

I’d look after those windows Barry they are very rare.  I think P&H were the only other yard to use anything like them and even Powles did not carry them through to other designs.  I suspect because of cost more than anything else.
