    Here's Supplejack being launched, 1977, with help from crew friends Gavin Dagley, Ian Jenkins, Noel Fuller and obliging Little Shoal Bay locals. SJ got wrecked in a storm some years later but one broken hull became the main hull of Flash Harry and the other undamaged became Misguided Angel, both foiler trimarans.
