Tachyon was Chris Forman's boat built around 1973/4 and sailed by him in several championships, including (I believe) the 1974 worlds

Most of these photos are from the late 70s

The yellow paint job was in 1981 after an incident where the someone moved her and presumably dropped her on one side ripping most of the starboard side tank off. The only sign of the repair in the car top photo is the (as yet) unplaned replacement aft gunwale section - I was quite proud of that repair.
