A bit like buses you don't see one for ages then they all come along together, a couple of Robert Tucker designed Caprice's turned up in almost adjacent moorings on the river.

 The top one is a late model probably a Mk V in GPR which is the same model as my first boat

The second has been featured here before an earlier plywood one possibly a Mk III

In comparison with more modern small yachts even from the late 70's and especially the 80's these 19 foot yachts Carprice are tiny, but their capability as demonstrated by Shane Acton who circumnavigated twice aboard Shrimpey, can't be denied.
