Piper, Norbury Junction and Frobishers

I notice from the history section (http://www.piperowners.co.uk/piperowners_history.htm)
of Piper Boats' origins at Shropshire Union Canal Cruisers.
I'm writing about some old Frobisher boats, built at Norbury in the early 1970s, and wondered about David Piper's input to those. Was he involved?

Re: Piper, Norbury Junction and Frobishers


David wasn't involved in the Frobishers. We started our own business in Norbury village in 1969 and although we did build for SUC in the early days, they weren't the Frobisher class.
