From the wonderful Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association, here’s a heart-warming series of photos in which traditionally-built Merlin Rocket 252 is brought back to gleaming life. Great work!

The Merlin Rocket class was born when the established Merlin and Rocket classes merged a long time ago. With such an early sail number, I wonder whether this boat predates the merger? And if so, was it a Merlin or a Rocket?
