She was a 1/4 tonner designed by Angelo Lavranos (). Angelo Lavranos: "Richard and John Robertson owned the prototype which they raced along with Geoff Meek as skipper. Lex Raas had started building the production version and he sailed 'Lathyrus Oderatus and Cupea' with Dave Hudson and the other wooden one 'Red Baron' with Billy Liesegang .
