Hello all, if anyone else is interested I had a look on www.abebooks.co.uk for the mentioned book of the Duchess of Fife and found eight different selllers ranging from 4.60 to 30  :o

This was the least expensive one

Hi All,
I received my 7 float rims this morning. Have posted a pic for any criticism.
New toys to play with, a days sailing and the suns out, don't get much better than this...
Regards
Kim

Yep I'd agree with that...I like how 7 float wheels look so "un-cluttered".
 Very nice   8)
