Bloody Nice is what it is...if it has a lifting keel then it is even better.

Either a JS9000 or an Admiralty 30.... and it's green!

it is "the Old Man 40"

 

The original concept was to blow up the lines of a radio controlled sailboat and have a very fast very simple to sail 40 foot speedster for old farts to go play one design games.

 

it has a ten foot bulbed keel and a forty foot mast. The skipper's seat is gimbled as is the beer cooler that sits directly in front of him.

 

each hull weighs only 450 lbs. The keel bulb is 1000 lbs.

 

The sailors will be weighed as they step on board and water will be added to the gimbaled seat to bring all "competitors" up to 260 lbs.

 

Steering is accomplished with the feet and the main sail is trimmed with a two handed monkey grinder style winch.

 

Austin Yacht Club has the first 20 hulls currently sitting in the parking lot and the builder's technical staff is assembling the boats this Monday and Tuesday so the boats can be launched Wednesday for afternoon lake trials.

 

AYC has purchased two twenty boat docks with electric lifts for storage and the second set of 20 hulls is scheduled to arrive in mid February.

 

The first racing is scheduled for this Saturday.

It is the 40 foot version of the JS9000. Swarbrick has been working on it for the past couple of years. Should be very quick

Yeah, it's that thing that was scooting round Sydney harbour last year before something fell off...!

Same color anyway B)

 

Edit: Just checked....

Sorta looked similar to the radical 40....But no...

Unless they bought the hull and chopped it round.

But who would repaint it green again?? :huh:

Well the boat is actually a Admiralty 30 designed by John Swarbrick and built in Hong Kong. To date she has sailed as "Despicable" in Long Beach CA, and has just under gone a magic refit with Bill Matchett managing the project and using Nacho and his paint team at the Windward boat yard Marina Del Rey. Packed up with all new gear and ready for some fun in Dubai. Thanks to Dupont for the great Imron paint and sea hawk for the antifoul.

definitely not the Radical 40, but they did get the colour right.

 

Whatever happened to that boat? Last saw it in Geelong a few years ago but not sighted since.

Aswell as aiming to replace the SKUD18 at the paralympics in the future?

Js9k?

 

JS9000 - John Swarbrick 9000.

 

Teaky sailed one owned by Shnorky the Wave Puncher, boat started life as Arrow then became Jet. Now has wings and a more refined bulb shape, IIRC the original bulb matched the one in the second pic in this thread. Shnorky/Justin the owner chopped the wings off, then added some lead back on as the boat was a bit too tippy... tipsy? No, that's Teaky.

It's an Admiralty 30. Keel is confirmation. Definitely not the 40. The stem on the 40 is about 2m in depth and the stern and mid sections are much fuller. The headstay is also set much further aft on the foredeck.

 

As far as I know, the only only (still unfinished) Admiralty 40 hull out of the mold is still in storage in the factory in Loyang, Singapore waiting for direction from JS, which is unlikely to happen. It's a great looking hull (much better than the 30 IMHO) and a perfect shorthand high performance day/bay racer I suspect. Draft would be the only issue for the 40.

 

There are in fact two keel depth designs for the 30 but the shallowest one is the only one that has been sold with the boat. The performance would go up incredibly (as would the ratiing) with the deep keel. There is one fully prepped sitting in Singapore still I believe.

Sitting i.e. not being raced? That'd be a shame.

Better to view it on an empty stomach. Up close, that color of green encourages projectile vomiting.

 

Notice the knuckle (the thingy that hangs below the water line at the front-that didn't fall off, yet). Betcha it steers like an overlaoded semi on black ice: helm over (don't make any plans, hmmm, hmmm...dum da dum dee dum...) oh, there is goes...well then-what's all that water doing splashing over into the cockpit(?) and we should be up to course in a about another minute! Great tack! We went from 6.5 to 1.5 knots! Whaddaya mean the gun went off 15 sec. ago?

 

Other than that minor design flaw and the Avacado-on-crack green color...a bitchen boat!

 

Saw this puppy get stripped, faired, Keel off and faired, then beautifully painted that green (Pepcid helped) and reassembled. Nice prep and finsish job...butt-ugly color.

 

Suggest the owner get some really dark shades. And a cover.

The name on the RIB gives away the location, not that knowing where it is helps identify what the boat is
