    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    You're probably right Leka but I have to ask...why?

    Station sponsor!

    Another one, very sad. Unfortunately good or visionary boat builders are by nature often not great businessmen. Our heritage is littered with them unfortunately, the ones who did best were often family businesses. Not too different to what's happening around us really, mass production for the masses, getting better stuff for the mobile and bespoke for the bespoken.
  3. Both bloody nice boats, horses for courses or best example in which ever parts you inhabit.
  4. On a side note Jack do you know what happened to Morna? Last I saw of her was a sad sight on a Squadron mooring 15 or so years ago. 7 Hobart wins wasn't it?

    That might be an OK project, maybe the stoner just needs to leave town, like soon man.

    Wow, I only cleared out the old links about this a month ago. Sounds like same Canadian owners with a polish up by the broker maybe. Lots more interior pics and no underwater stuff. Bloody interesting boat.

    Yes, interesting comment that one. Many thanks for your work JBC, that's my withdrawal plan. Now THAT would be a ballsy move.........not recommended unless plasterer.. As above, interesting.
