Holdfast its well known you like to have a portfolio of yachts at one time. Here is you chance to help a fellow sailor and allow him to spend your cash on his next dream. The thought of a Wednesday night bandit with a plumbed toilet must be very tempting to you!  Plus if you buy it Lydia get his wish to come true

So its a win win situation,  ALL it needs is an exchange of phone numbers but dont tell Sportscar lol

Don’t undersell Hoppys pride and joy! It has no less than TWO plumbed toilets.

I've soloed my dual helmed and dual head Jeanneau for several thousand miles and except at the end of the season when I'm having to clean them both, I appreciate having them. I can cope with going to a single helm & head racer with the barest of accomodation, but the head has to be plumed...

My minimum racer requirement

That hose is clear plastic, it’s kinked, there is no loop, no vent and the outlet looks like an old gate valve.

No loop on the other hose either, wherever it is.

I hope the one we can see is the inlet....not keen on visually inspecting the outlet.

One shit job of installing a shitter...

I'm not really sure what you're on about here, but I can assure you I subscribe to the theory that the only thing dumber than owning a boat is owning two boats. 

Not taking cheap shots at Hoppy, his want to do offshore things like Devonport is admirable - more speaking in general terms that the time is now. That there's rarely if ever 'the perfect time'.

Given that there's a switch, a whack of wiring and no sign of a pump handle - what are the odds that the head has a macerator on it and everything expelled from the boat is errrr... sludge?

Yeap, always a good plan to plumb it with 27 cent beverage hose from Clarks.

On behalf of all of us who have laboured through this interminable thread for so long - that's probably one  you really should have jumped on for what you  tell us you want to do.

Hey guys - how do those little a-frame sprits work out? They are simple, relatively cheap, and much less of a bear to install, but do they also just rip off the bow in a broach?

Eventually. No great rush as most boats are in Skidknee and further north and it's not a good time to bring a boat south unless you have plenty of time to wait for a window.

Am a bit gutted that Kick is on it's way back to Kiwiland. It would have been a very good boat as I could still have a gin palace and a decent boat for club racing. Just needed to bin the roller and dust of the race sails.

Come on Hoppster, all the research has been done and you need the boat soon so you can prepare for M2D or whatever is first on your bucket list.

If it was a Wednesday Night Special a syndicate might work, but once you get families & wives who want it for weekends it goes to shit quick. I'm sure you'll find a good one in your budget, just depends on how little interior you can get away with. Maybe bribe the missus if you get a racy boat & give her 5k to put her touch on it. Wine chiller, Bimini, iPad fast charger, Cushions & curtains - whatever she wants. 

"Wednesday Night Special" might be a good name.

What sort of coin would it cost to truck a 36er or there abouts, to and from Hammo front sydney?

Next level,

 

Why  would you truck the boat from Sydney to Hammo when all of the racing is headed north that time of year and most are eased sheets ?

 

As far as trucking the boat back from Airlie to Melbourne you will not get much change from $20k. It’s the extra cost people forget about. Crane mast in and out, pack Boat ready for travel, load Boat on and off he truck, extra insurance. 

 

I did the sums a few years back to send 2 x 40 foot power boats of the some design from the Gold Coast, 1 to Melbourne’s and 1 to Adelaide by road and sea. Trucking costs and pack up cost were both the same by road about $17k including extras. We ended up sending the Melbourne Boat by water as the saving even after paying fuel and skipper were about $8k and trucked the other to Adelaide. 

 

So it’s the extras costs that we all forget about when trucking the boats about.

Agreed you wouldn’t truck north but I was curious either way. 

Thsnks for the numbers. A lot of money regardless.

Kept my code 1 and it's gear, the Selden furler, the top down adapter and tandem block and other gear. The North G2 went with the boat and I included a sock.

All that gear is being saved for the next boat. If the code 1 does not work with the next boat i'll take it off the anti-torsion line and save the gear for a code 0.

She does look good and had 100k spent on it in recent years. 

The exchange rate covers the GST, so it's a 100k boat landed here. Just need to do the delivery.

According to a well credentialled surveyor, O E had a problem with striking a solid object and she was later found to be leaking around the keel. Major effort to detach the keel for repairs. Should be quite ok once works are completed.

To my eye Squealer would be easier to sail and quicker (especially without a crack crew) than a Mumm/Farr or a Sydney - and has a habitable interior. Lots of up to date equipment and safety stuff... only downside for your requirements is runners... Assys help balance that though!

Corum has a fat head main and runners and a backstay/no runners for their pinhead main. Maybe Squealer can be fitted the same way

I've sailed on Squealer, have known the guys who did the mods for over 40 years, raced on Mumm 36s and raced against Corum in (that) Keppel race last year.

Leaving aside location and price, the choice depends on the following;

Breeze - Squealer will easier to push harder in a breeze and is slower in the light

Helm - Squealer is more forgiving to a momentary lapse.

Crew - Squealer is more forgiving- gear changes, placement around boat.

Course - Corum upwind, Squealer 2 sailing and broad reaching, Corum downwind - especially in the light.

The photo looks to have been taken with a wide angle lens so the extremities will look distorted relative to the centre. So the rudder is probably bigger than it appears.
