At the local model boat club, four friends were talking about their boats.
There were a total of eight boats, two in each colour, red, green, blue and yellow. Each friend owned two boats and no friend had two boats of the same colour.
Alan didn't have a yellow boat.
Brian didn't have a red boat, but did have a green one.
One of the friends had a yellow boat and a blue boat.
Another friend had a green boat and a blue boat.
Charles had a yellow boat.
Darren had a blue boat, but didn't have a green one.
Can you work out which friend had which coloured boats?

Hint: The words are linked by their letters.
The initial letters spell ORANGE and the last letters spell INDIGO.
By changing the third letter of each of the words below, can you make another valid word.
You have to change each word such that the third letters will reveal a ten letter word when read downwards.
Therefore, what now reads KRZSAPROKD will be a real word.
