    Top Umbra 1 in grey primer after being used to make mould for Umbra 2,note the blue conning tower this is a replacement for the original which did not survive the moulding process.

    The second boat is Umbra 2 and is a glassfibre copy of Umbra 1,this is the boat that Brian now usess. Umbra 1 is now in the Sub Museum at Gosport.


    Bottom is Umbra 2 showing removable bow section.
