This Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin has Cummins marine engines, new anti-foul and anodes.   The new owner will benefit from having an experienced and knowledgeable Fairey boat aficionado as the vendor. Hull # 24.  Now called Friday's Child previously Wight Huntsman, Big Ed III and originally Tufter. The Fairey Huntsman 31 was the brain child of Chief Designer Alan Burnard and the hulls were made from multiple layers of Agba veneers, hot-moulded in an autoclave. All Fairey Huntsman 31s are renowned for their soft and dry ride which is why they are highly desired when they rarely come onto the market. Friday's Child is a 1971 Fairey Huntsman 31, one of the later production models, and benefits from the racing experience of earlier boats by having extra Agba layers to the bottom (nine in all) and longer hogs/longitudinals (engine bearers) that extend into the fore-cabin to significantly stiffen the hull. A few years ago, well-respected shipwright Fred Kemp did a 'no corner overlooked' renovation to the woodwork (including teak deck and cabin roof) and current owner Ben Curtis took on the mechanical aspects of the renovation so in 2016 fitted: Cummins Marine B series 6 cylinder 6 litre turbo-charged marine diesels rated at 180hp (NB not new)
