Some of you might find this YW Diamond restoration project interesting, apparently this boat was owned by Chris Bouzaid back in the day. 

 

I see Puffs profile photo looks to be a similar boat.

Is that the one that was parked at the storage yard halfway up the Bombay's?

If so, I've frequently admired her from afar. Very similar colours if it isn't.
