    Farr 1/2 Tonner

    If this is Hot Bubbles 2 she was a Townsville boat (north QLD) in the early mid 1980's when i was a young lad (10yo) and owned by a local solicitor "Clive Scott". She may have even done the Cairns to Port Moresby (PNG) ocean race during his tenure. Back then she was dark blue with 2 white stripes under the gunwalls. Always thought she was a sweet boat. Back then we had a few 1/2 tonners in the club... 2 Holland 30's "Pride Of Oleron" & "Golden Era" my parents had "Waaratah" a Waarschip 1/2 tonner originally from Sandringham Vic. Hot Bubbles 2 the Farr 30.

    I think Mayfair (Beneteau First 40) could be purchased and race ready..... (based in Brisbane but could still be in Hobart afaik?)

    Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    Didnt Windward Passage 2 become " Il Moro De Venezia" ? What happened to Cookson 12 No Fearr? I have fond memories of her... We won everything in 1996 except the Sydney - Hobart that i missed because my misses (ex misses) at the time wouldnt let me go!!!!! Was a rocketship!!! Last i heard she had a sweptback rig and used for shorthanded racing. Was arguably the best C12 ever.

BTW Didnt Hollywood buy the Hobart winner Rosebud a few years ago...What happened to her? Did she even leave the USA?

    looks like it goes alright downwind in the videos but how does it go against similar sized boats on a regular race track? dont get me wrong it looks the shit just wondering if it is actually competetive?

    Thanks for the feed back guys i shall let him know!I think if he buys the spider he will still build the i550 anyway as a work promo...he has a lasercutting buisness and it would be a great example! Do you guys know much about the boat he is looking at? its called SPYDERMAN?

    I was wondering and TTB you would probably know........... Is a or "your i550 quicker than or competetive with the spider 22's? the reason i ask is a mate of mine has the i550 plans but is also looking at a spider22 to sail now Keen to hear yor reply
