Retro & UMOs

This page is set aside for interesting retro shots and interesting or unidentified Macs.

A print of the above image came along with the original documentation provided with our Macwester. The photograph was taken by Anthony Reynolds LMPA. Anthony worked for Macwester Marine initially constructing hulls, then progressing to become a rigger, and eventually an in-house photographer. Anthony subsequently left Macwester to become a professional photographer, a career that he continues to the present day. Thanks Anthony.

Many thanks to Mr D Allen for sending in the three pictures below. Mr Allen is the current owner of Zenquest (originally named Gwyn Alarch or Gwyn Alargh), one of only five Macwester 28 Wight prototypes. Following on from the 28ft prototypes, the Mk1 Wight Class boats were 30ft long, so this is a particularly rare Macwester indeed.
