Aussie/Kiwi ocean and club racers

Recommended Posts

My $80k ocean and club racers thread vanished thread vanished when "Hoppy" got assassinated. Even though I haven't bought a boat yet, I'm sure a few boat buyers had visited the thread and got info about certain boats, including non SA people because it regularly showed up in google searches.

So I will start the thread again, but more general with no budget (or electric toilet) constraints. 

I will also post about boats that had been mentioned in the thread $80k thread and since been sold, if I have any worthwhile info about them.

Not sure whether I want to cheer or scream, but yeah, I did find the thread interesting.

Why not grovel and ask that the thread be restored?  I'm guessing forum admins have the control panel to "unhide" it . . . . I'd vote for that if it would do any good.

Greg Elliott boats

The $80k thread started with a post about the Elliott 10.5 High Anxiety, so it will be the first boat in this new thread.

Elliott 10.5 - High Anxiety 

It is still for sale. The starting price was something like $79k and is now listed at $49k. Given the reputation of Elliott boats I'm a little surprised it has not sold, but it is an old boat (1988) and old boats don't seem to shift so well.  The lifting keel splitting the cabin and original Volvo 2002 will be a negative and perhaps so to the age of the sails, even though they are top quality OneSails.

Elliott 10.5 - Squealer / Motorboat 2

A heavily modified E10.5 that was sole in NZ in 2018. Was listed for about $100k NZ and was bought by BooBoo who has upgraded it and renamed it to Motorboat 2. MB2 has been showing impressive speed and results in the NZ 2h series. 

You can follow MB2's exploits on https://www.facebook.com/motorboat.E10.5/

Elliott 1050 - Kick

Kick was listed for about $80k. It was originally raced in NZ successfully before moving to Aus in the early naughties. It seems to be the first 1050 with a new generation keel which has been referred to as the "Kick Keel". Kick was purchased by a Kiwi and was sailed back there. I vaguely recall seeing that the buyers father used to sail on Kick before it left NZ. Kick has since been modified with a new bowsprit, had a total refurb and is regularly racing against MB2 in the 2h. The last mod seems to be a fat top main.

Mumm 36

Farr/Mumm 36 Corum

Corum is a heavily modified Mumm 36 and was first listed and sold in early 2018. I had the pleasure to inspect her as I was on holiday in Surfers. She was in stunning condition, looked like a 5 yo boat, not 25 year. She was bought by a well known Aus army veteran who did one season with her. He is in his 70's and it was a last fling at racing I believe. Corum was relisted earlier this year. Both times around $80k. Corum now races in Sydney, I think at the Manly yacht club.

Maximumm

This boat seems to be an original Mumm 36 with no mods. It's been for sale for a while and was mentioned early in the other thread. Current price is $70k

Inglis

Inglis 39 - She's the Culprit

It's been listed for $95k for well over a year. The boat is in great shape and owned by a syndicate. It will do the 75th S2H. I don't think the owners are in any rush to sell and are happy to keep racing until someone offers the money they want. So not a boat to low ball offers.

Was original built for the Melbourne Osaka and was called Top Cat and then 42 South I think

Northshore/Jutson

There were a few Northshore NSX 369's and a NS369 that were listed in the 80k thread. One NSX369 from Sydney ended up in Melbourne

NSX36 - The Bookmaker 

This boat has been listed for 2 years I think. Seems to have been very competitive in Melbourne, although it was mentioned to me that it was a big part due to one particular crew member.

When first listed the standing rigging was 10 years old, but it now has new standing rigging.

The price started at 79k I think, eventually dropped to 59k and since the rigging replacement, bounced back up to $69k

I thought your list of priorities was this -

1. Enclosed head

2. Electric Macerator in head

3. Price less than $80k

4. Throw cushions in main salon.

5. No room in cockpit for D'ranger.

Don’t mention the war. I think it’s short on sails as in the last SOPS race with 20 knots of breeze they chose to use the storm jib.

 

It’s a real pity... anything Elliot has alway been as quick as you’ll let it be. Tie both hind legs together, and that dog don’t hunt.

You're approaching this all wrong Hoppy. If you want to win races it  doesn't really matter which boat you buy. Winning in Aus simply requires you to have a few mates at Australian Sailing, and a healthy disrespect for the rule book. So take the money you were saving for upgrades and spend it on old fashioned graft and corruption. 

Much more effective tin cup strategy. Trust me.

Very true. I wonder if biking and golf clubs also provide people to vandalise your equipment and call meetings with non sporting community organisations you work with to besmirch your professional character. 

I hope so, will make me feel right at home.

I'm sure biking clubs can arrange a puncture and golf clubs can hide your ball in the rough to make you feel welcome.

Or move down to Melbourne and join my club. We seem pretty well behaved compared to up your way and we can show you that it is possible to sail even when it is less than 25c.

Not a racer, but I just found a Jeanneau 57 in Geraldton that is up for auction starting at $95k.

A massive chunk is missing from the rudder and it's clearly been sitting around neglected for some time. Perhaps the boat was seized by federal police for drug running?

I wonder if AS has one that may help ?

Not a racer, but I just found a Jeanneau 57 in Geraldton that is up for auction starting at $95k.

A massive chunk is missing from the rudder and it's clearly been sitting around neglected for some time. Perhaps the boat was seized by federal police for drug running?

Drug boat, do they have the authority to sell it and will the owner come looking for it?

I probably missed it Shaggy but what was damaged? 

I have known some real douchebags in my days but messing with someones boat is low.

G'day LWB,

Yeah, new to me too. Batteries/electrical,hull damage. Finding the docklines untied and made to look as they were still attached was a low day.

Luckily, the boat just bounced off the dock cleat instead of bouncing off my very expensive next door neighbour.

A new one was finding the power cable had cuts down to bare copper. It often sits in water on the dock, so shorted out the power and fucked the batteries and a few other things.

The club tell me that's 'normal'. What I can't work out is why all this 'normal' stuff only happened after I protested the club.

That’s absurd and frankly speaks very poorly of the Aussie scene. I’m sorry to hear this shaggy.

That is beyond shocking. Id be seriously pissed if someone fucked with my boat like that. And my boat is nowhere near as cool as yours!

Not the Aussie scene

just one club 

which of course has more surveillance camera than most high security prisons and shaggy’s Boat was right in front of one but bet that video is not getting reviewed any time soon

This is beyond sad and beneath the Aussies I have met.  The guys who brought the boat to the Ultimate Yacht Race (farce) on Corpus Christi bay were sportsmen of the highest calibre. 

When we pulled into Perth on a Big Grey Ship back in the day the hospitality shown put the remainder of the world to shame.  Best advice I have ever been given was when our XO stopped me leaving the ship and told me to change into my Dress Whites.  

Karma is a bitch, Neptune will not view their treatment of you in a positive light.

I thought Shaggy reported it to the police, so they would have been curious to see. I guess not.

I could not agree with you more.  Tell Shaggy to go piss up a halyard or offer a fair fight in the parking lot but to dick around with a defensless boat is an act of those totally without honor.

Now there's a real Rule 69 issue!

But of course there's never evidence when some people are involved.

@shaggybaxter did you report it the water or regular police? 

The Wynnum police. They knew where the club was from other recent matters that they attended there.

Non of us did. It is very sad to see a club go like this. I once loved that place and devoted decades of my life to it. Good guys like Shaggy don’t come to the sport very often and that club have completely burned him simply because of  his association with someone the flag officers don’t like.

Yer, Shaggy always came across as a nice guy.

Pity he ended up involved in this mess with " someone the flag officers don’t like".

By the way  is this ," someone the flag officers don’t like" ,  also the abusive one that  breached the rules of a private club ?

Its hard to keep up with the "saga " now spread over 3 threads .

Just ask'n.

 

For an instant I thought that Mr Octopus had photo bombed the shitter  picture.

White legs every where.

At our club, we laugh at the sailors who sail with those we don't like.  Overturning their protests and telling them they can't sail with trheir mates seems wrong in every way imaginable. I can only presume you guys will reap what you sow and my respect for your club is exactly zero. Along with quite a few others I know who's opinion is swinging that way too.

Only makes sense if you are trying to hide some big embarrassing secret maybe?

Any likelihood of an overthrow of certain flag officers at the next election or are the majority of members oblivious to what's going on?

It is really only those that sail that know what has happened so yeah the majority of members don’t know.

Cooz I like to cut and paste.

Ok time to move on.

Back to the thread at hand.

Well the "aussiekiwi" bit anyway.

Any goss on the Brand Spanker??  SOLARIS 50 that clobbered the bricks on the way into Eden ?

Delivery from NZ maybe, heading to RSAYS.

They dropped the rig, and craned it out today.

Heres a photo  loaded on the truck, I presume headed to Sydney for repair maybe?.
