1/4 pounder

1/4 pounder

You know what suckers (read: the Ed is old) for the old IOR Ton boats and here’s thread about one of the great ones….

I own an Ecume de Mer (FINOT Quarter Ton) and with another owner I am organizing an ‘EdM club’ in the Netherlands. There is a French site with a lot of info about the boat but I also read that in 1973 an EdM called "Dark Star" won the North American Quarter Ton Cup. Is there anyone here who has info on this boat or maybe some pictures? And was it a ‘normal’ boat (EdM type 69) or the race version with a flush deck like "Petite Fleur" who won the Quarter Ton Cup in 1972. Jump in if you are over 50!
