Design 2146 - Oyster

Although most people know this boat as Silly Goose, she started life as Oyster. Oyster was designed and built for Admiral's Cup competition. She was built using cold molded wood construction techniques by the R. J. Prior & Son Ltd. yard of England and launched in 1973. So here's yet another contender for the Admiral's Cup of that year.

Here are the plans.
