Information and picture from Humphreys website (2015): "While competing in ISORA Race Week on Highwayman in Abersoch in 1982 one of the races was postponed for complete lack of wind, and very shortly a then fashionable sunflower raft was formed, counting almost a hundred boats in circular pattern. In such unusual social gatherings many choose to go walkabout and it was in this circumstance that Rob Humphreys met the late Alan Fittion, then the owner of the Nicholson 33 Scenario. Fitton told Humphreys that he was thinking of a new Three Quarter Tonner and was eager to hear about Roller Skate. It wasn’t long after that Humphreys was commissioned to design Scenario Act Two, a boat in very much the same spirit as Roller Skate but a little further refined in performance terms.
Scenario Act Two was an active campaigner and enjoyed a long string of results, only some of which we find were filed away. Among these were 1st in Class II in the Scottish Tomatin Series in 1984 and second in the RORC Class IV season’s points in 1985.

2020 Juin, Facebook: "If anyone knows anyone that might be interested, this famous Humphreys 3/4 tonner is derelict on a drive way in yorkshire and free to any good home. Bare hull, no keel, few fittings, but worth restoring. Epoxy/foam build, really ahead of its time. It would be a complete resto but with the age allowance could make a competitive boat again. Message me for any more info, but only serious enquiries please the owner has been messed around endlessly so only get in touch if youre thinking of hiring a lowloader to come and get it after Covid restrictions are lifted"
Dan Searjeant "No need to be slagging off the boat, the guy that owns it or anyone contemplating taking it on. We all know how much of a project something like this would be and how much it will cost and how little financial sense boat projects make in general. Im not trying to get rid of it, im sharing the knowledge incase someone out there wants to have a go at it before the owner cuts it up thats all. I dont own it, im not responsible for it and have no interest in it, just recognise that it is a successful 1 off by a famous designer and would be a shame to be cut up"
