By process of elimination (as there was only three and the other two are accounted for!) and photo comparision it looks like "Cutlass" is laid in a boatyard on Greek Cyprus in a semi-derelict condition owning to the death of her Owner and the "Chadburn" ringing stop for the boatbuilders, unfortunatly I could find no Builders plate or any numbers for a truly positive result when I scrambled over her but after consulting the boatbuilders in pigeon Greek (which alway's meant a lot of arm waving) from my days in the M.N. as they spoke very little English and various other people who know there stuff about these boats it appears to be her. If you want her you will have to be quick as the whole area is due for re-development and she will meet the axe-man.    RBDG.
