    Tony Bott, That alloy mast has to be 30+ years old! I helped step it. Good luck. I tried to inject a little reality, that's all. Cheers.

    'Triple Jack' rebuild...FU Irma!

    Hi & congratulations for sheer bloody minded determination and perseverance! What a job! So nice to see Triple Jack coming back better than she was. Looking forward to the next post. Cheers and best wishes.

    Feb 6, 2020. First catch up on the Bullfrogs mast thread for many moons. Some sad, & many funny moments. Having sailed and raced on her over many years with Ian & Cathy, & Rod & Lynn, I will always have a great deal of respect for her. Almost bought her from Geoff & Lorraine but missed out by a week! She was sold for $ 155,000 back then. Worth it at the time. Then came 2 more owners, Some years of little use & another inspection in Pittwater. I offered the broker $50,000 as she needed a complete re fit paint rig and sails. The owner then thought it was worth $120,000. No deal luckily. I did call in a couple of times to the creek and checked her out with Tony Bott who had bought her for somewhat north of my offer and hoped to see her eventually, after a lot of work, back sailing again. Tony, in my opinion Hunghigh, low, tiny's offer is / was fair in the current market! I actually helped Ian & Cath to fit that new, then!, rig in Pittwater and then sailed down to Sydney, So long ago now that I would not trust it at all offshore. My 2 cents. Only have Bullfrogs best interests in mind. Cheers all.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    I have been able to watch all of the SailGP from Sydney on, live & without ads on the big screen TV via MacBook, VPN, Apple TV at home in QLD Australia. Awesome coverage, very little delay. If the coming AC does as good or better, Woohoo! Cheers.

    Hughes/Perry 63 tri

    A copy of the rig on Paradox would be close depending on weight and RM comparisons. And it's been bulletproof as far as I know. Love to see Rosinante get another life world cruising as she was intended. Cheers all.

    Fire Arrow Foil System Wins Big!

    Oh dear, First look for quite a while & I see nothing changed but for increased claims. Always entertaining though. Cheers all.

    Hughes/Perry 63 tri

    Was sold recently to go from Hawaii to Europe i thought freshly repainted and in one piece, ie with rig & sails. Don't know what changes to the rig were made? Have to agree with Rasputin 22 on that one. Also agree with Earth BM on cost of new carbon mast & sails.! Tri in Hawaii. Logistics? Love the Tri but?? Anyone have any more info? Cheers.

    SuperFoiler Season 2

    Very sad to see the demise of this great attempt to make the superfoilers work! Sail GP unfortunatly for SF, has the backing and the world circuit to play with. Sydney & San Fran were spectacular, but it remains to be seen how they will look in non foiling breeze? Cheers all. PS Little AC also seems to have had its day?

    'Triple Jack' rebuild...FU Irma!

    I'm exhausted just reading these heart breaking stories. What a pair of bastard cyclone's you have had to put up with. Good luck to you all with the rebuilds. Anyone know what happened to Virgin Fire? Cheers.
