Interesting to read Don's comments and to see his photos.
Have double checked with Francis Prout, and the catamaran in the photo is the first cruising cat that was built, the 27ft Ranger, subsequent Rangers were made in fibreglass, the mould having been taken from the original wooden one.

Just had a phone call from Francis, now that he has seen the photo he has said that the catamaran was in fact the first 19ft cruiser, which had a raising roof to give headroom when at anchor. Sorry about the error Don, put it down to a senior moment.
