    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    'Was' is the correct tense. Thoughts & prayers little fella.

    Either on the Isle of Dogs, or Wapping, near where she's moored atm. Going to head down there later and take a look at her

    Bogan of the week FP - Trimaran

    Get Rimas onboard to jury rig it with one his bedsheets and let him singlehand it downwind to Straya
  4. And that's the assumption that is the undoing of your statement.

    How does the new bulb compare to other HH42s Mex, have they gone lighter as well or is this what you guys feel is best for the boat?

    What are some suggestions to revitalise it? I've only sailed out of Sandy (and Melb) the last 5 years so missed it's relatively glory years, was it a different format?

    Top pic in Hobart, bottom pic in SYC, I assume from when she did Melb-Hob westcoaster a few years back? I think she's up for sale again too
  9. No, he'll be the one paying for a tug
  10. I'd be keen - send him upwind the whole way round

    No photos yet, it was all still wrapped up when I saw it as I think it had literally just arrived. No other info either, was hoping someone here could shed some light, Sportscar?

    Nice new (?) Open 40 arrived at SYC yesterday, apparently for the Osaka - should fun watching that blitz along!

    True he didn't say Geelong, specifically, but this is what he is quoted as saying.....reported on 31 March 2015 "Due to arrive into Sandringham Yacht Club in early September 2015, the new owner and 38 South Boat Sales Managing Director Rohan Veal, cannot wait to get the boat out on the water for club racing for the start of the season." That's a hell of a long build time for an "E glass, core cell vinylester resin construction" 31 footer. I've read on FB that hull #2 is due mid-Dec and 2 boats are due to be racing at Geelong...
