    Farr 1/2 Tonner

    Sistership to this one? https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/farr-1-2-tonner/227743
  2. I have the Adams Yacht Design book, 3rd edition 1994. There is a simple lines drawing of Helsal, a sail plan, and some basic dimensions. The book makes mention of a (now defunct) website www.adamsyachtdesign.com , an email address adamsyachtdesign@bigpond.com.au, and a Sydney phone number 02 967222441 (which has too many digits, odd). The name of the guy who at that point had the plans was Tony Kavaliauskas.

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

  4. Tim Lackey is doing something interesting with a 14' Handy Cat he has and an electric trolling motor - might be of interest. See http://www.lackeysailing.com under the "Project Logs" section.

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Seems to have lost a mast somewhere along the way? I guess that explains the "Misson mast" line in the specs...
  6. http://www.centralyachts.com/listings/sail/lyons65.html Somewhat better built than Excalibur was by the same builders, one would hope.
  7. Is that the same yacht which raced as "Wild One" in the 2000 Melbourne-Hobart and cracked the hull during the race? Apparently a 1m crack and a large amount of water in the hull. From memory might have dropped the rig off St Helens on the way back. Think it later entered a Melbourne-Osaka but failed the entry requirements and was put up for sale.

    Is this the same Apache that was rolled and later abandoned during the return from the 1995 Melbourne-Burnie race?
