Peter Powell Mk I / Mk II timings

Wed Mar 01, 2017 9:49 pm

Does anyone know in which year the Peter Powell Mk I frame changed from aluminium to fibreglass? In which year the Mk II came on the market? And in which year the sail of the Mk II changed from polythene to ripstop?

The Powell brothers were just on Breakfast TV. Nice to see some film clips of Peter from the '70s.

Yep, just saw it! And great to see that clip of granny being hauled up. I'd heard the story, of course, but didn't know there was a clip of it.

Anyone in the UK wanting to see the interview, it's on iPlayer. Mark and Paul come in at the very end, at 09:52am.
