I think "improvements" may be the wrong description!

I think the boat is the Opal, I might be wrong, and underneath the light blue toorie is Stevie Miller.

Standing in the centre with the green jacket and his back to the camera is Dave Gentle the current owner of the other boat in the picture the Fair Fortune.

After another look, I think the the guy on the left with his back to the camera is possibly Steven Cullen, and looks like Gordon Stove with the dark blue top.

this was the latest in a long run of plans that the uppies tried to stem the doonie wins, adding another three feet to the distance we had to go (mind you it seems to have worked)

On the boat from the left is, Steven Cullen, Pip Stout, Dave Gentle, Crawford Cursiter and Stevie Miller.
