For anyone wondering about the SLIPPER 42 made by Tyler mouldings, Robin Musters says the following:
The Slipper 42 started life as the Rancher 41, which Tylers acquired the moulds of.
We raised the topsides about a foot and discarded the bolt on keel and spade rudder in favour of internal ballast and a skeg rudder. This converted a racing hull into a cruising boat. As well as the keel and rudder, I drew the interior layout and the new deck.
We moulded several Holman & Pye designs starting with the Twisters, Hustler 30 & 35, Bowman 46, but they were not involved with the Slipper 42.
Terrific! Great stuff. Thanks very much 'sailorman_john'. I replied to your post previously, but for some reason, the whole message disappeared. Let me get back to you. In the mean time, I will include this information as a footnote.
Regards to you, and Robin Musters.
