Comment on Facebook 28th Oct 2013:

Avia Willment Dear Avia,
In 1952 ‘Apache’ was sold to Joseph Beaman of London and re-named ‘Gaia’ and remained in London under his ownership certainly until 1956.
By 1964 she was owned by a John Thurston of West Mersea, Essex. In 1968 she had been sold on to P.A.S.
Wilkins and E.A. Jenkins, both of West Mersea.
Mr. Jenkins address then was 21, Hazel Road, Park Street Lane, St. Albans, Herts, England. By 1970 she is no longer listed in the Lloyds Register.
I last went up to West Mersea in about 2006 and am certain she was not there.
I have been asked if you are bringing your Eight out to race in the Solent next year?
Best I can do.
Best wishes,
Yours, Tim Street
