Here are a few pictures of Kerry Piper. The ones with the dark hull were taken in 1987 when I found her in Mechelen (Belgium) bringing her home to Antwerp for restoration. The pictures with the white hull were taken in 1990 after all the work. This is Antwerp harbour. Kerrypiper%201987%20-%201990.pdf

Chris, Uploading photos is really easy, and if need be I'll gladly tackle that for you. However, am I right in thinking that Sailing Today have copyright on those photos? If so, we must ask their permission to put them on the website. Even though we're not getting any commercial benefit - others might!

Thanks, Chris - Nice to know how you look!

Hi Chris, Welcome aboard! Do you have a portrait of yourself that you can upload to your Profile on the new site? It would be great to replace some of those sinister hooded figures in the Members section! I hope to know more about A31 soon.

Best wishes, John
