the 47 or 50 would probably sell for more than the 100.

The 100 was a bitser and built with the budget of a 50 footer. Hence it was never going to compete with the big budget 100's. In Europe Trieste I think today?

It's in a shed near Trieste ( Muggia).  Maybe will win the Barcolana this year since the rumor is only Italians will be able to register.     Hurray hahahah

Mad,

The 47 that was the original Wild Thing, is on the Gold Coast at Gold Coast city marina.

 

Grant bought  it back a few years ago from a Tasmanian. The last time I saw it, it was just sitting on the hard stand after the centre board case had been cut out and the deck changed and the cabin made longer. Grant, last time I saw him was looking for a TP 52 rig and Keel fin. 

 

Not shore  if anything else has been done to it  since then. All work stopped on the boat just before they started work on the 110 tri call the “The Yot Club”

I think the 86 had the deck cut off and used on the next boat and the hull was sold off.

 

As far as the Volvo 70 goes, that was never a Wild Thing. It was build for the Volvo race and I thought it was funded in part by the Vic government And Matt Allan. Matt ended up with the boat after the race.

The Inglis 47 fits into the story as Grant’s first of the Inglis 47’s and I think it was the first time he used the name “Wild Thing” and is a timber hull and ply deck. 

 

The boat was made famous for the photos that Richard Bennett took of her surfing down the west coast of Tasmania in 1990

Originally Vendetta, CEX Dolce first contested the Hobart in 1990 and finished 49th in IMS. In 1991 she was 10th in IMS and became AHC Hospitals and finished the 1994 race 18th overall, as Computerland, was PHS sixth overall in 1998. Along with Scavenger, Dolce was the first Inglis 47 to launch. Inglis boats are designed for downwind speed and this one was built, owned and raced by Alex and Paul Cittadini. Pierre Gal and Doug Gayford bought it in 2012, and in 2013, revitalised it with a new deck and interior, converting it from a racer to a cruiser-racer. Dolce finished 3rd in Performance Racing at Airlie Beach last year and finished 27th overall in the 2015 Sydney Gold Coast Race. The Cittadinis loaned the mould of this yacht to Grant Wharington to build his first Wild Thing, which took 1990 Melbourne Hobart line honours and race record and went on to race as Wild One.

Wharro had a white 70 footer designed by Murray, Burns & Dovell back in the late 90’s / early 00’s that used a spare rig from an IACC boat. If memory serves, the rig came from Spirit.

 

He then put that boat into the shed, lengthened it to 80 feet and painted it fluro green. I can’t recall if the water ballast was part of the original build or the rebuild.

 

The boat was later sold to David Dicker (current owner of the Dovell 50 canting keel harbour racer Atomic). He renamed her Martingale and went automation crazy so you’d see this 80 footer tearing around Sydney Harbour with 2 or 3 crew. IIRC he’s a software/systems engineer and his boats live next to Star City casino.

My understanding of the Inglis 47 Wildthing.

Went to WA and at some stage was renamed Wild One, had 3ft put on the back plus twin thru hull rudders and a bowsprit.

Sat on the market for ages and eventually sold to Northern Tassie where the owner wanted to turn her into a cruiser so added windows and a bit of an interior, but then sat for a while on the market.  I'm guessing that's when GW brought her.

The only other Inglis 47 that I know of in Tassie was Computerland which became Advantedge and is now being rebuilt as a racer/cruiser.

Computerland came over here as Vendetta and did quite well for a few years. 

Scavenger and Fast Forward still remain on this side of the rock.

Yup she is.  Current owner got the shits at me for saying that she will be on the market for a while on FB!!

He assumed I meant price and condition, but those aren't too bad, just a big boat to sell in a small city at a bad time!!!

I did the 1999 Swiftsure Race on perhaps another Wild Thing on this BOC 60 (designed by Ted Brewer to be single handed), as one of 5 on the foredeck.  We had a crew of 18 for it's first race., when the yacht was almost (not quite) completed. . . we needed to wear bicycle helmets below deck to keep from being sliced by unfinished sharp projections.  The owner had never raced before, but had a wad of $$$.  We "coached" him. . . so why did the spinnaker pole hit the water while we were doing 12 knots and break?   Sorry Ray, someone dropped the topping lift, it's probably only about $5K for a new carbon fiber pole. . . that's racing.   We also saw the carbon fiber 110' mast pumping, which broke a couple of weeks later. . . It was baked in 2 passes, which apparently did not work.  Attorneys were involved.  When we set the chute, it was amazing. . . someone asked how big is your house?  This one was 4,500 SF.

The owner had a great attitude, and worked hard to learn, and set a record for a single-handed race from SF to Kauai.  He was doing a single-handed qualifying trip down the coast, when he gybed with water ballast on the wrong side.  His arm got slammed by a door trying to get to his emergency gear, and could only get into his raft, as the yacht sank.  He floated in his raft for about 45 minutes in his raft (without a radio) and was seen by a freighter, that asked him if he needed a lift.  He got a ride to Vancouver, BC, and has not sailed again.

I sold the original Wild Thing in 1998, then named Wild One, from her Northern Tasmanian owner to Graham Leggo and Graeme 'Smithy' Smith who sailed her out of Sandringham Y C in Melbourne for a few years before selling her on again.She hadn't been extended or had an assy sprit  fitted at that time and I think she went to the West some time after that. She was still racing in Melbourne at the end of 2000.

Hmmm, you sure she was named Wild One then?

I just remembered there was one owned by an Apple Orchard farmer who named her Wild Apple, was listed in the 1997 3 peaks race results.

After that the only Inglis I knew of in the state was Computerland.

The Wild One from WA def ended up in Northern Tassie about 6 years ago, but she def had the sprit and hull extension, I have a pic of her on a mooring at PDYC in 2014

AdvantEdge is its original name from what I understand.  It raced under "Ocean Skins" for a long time in Melbourne before it returned to PDYC in Northern Tassie.  It wasnt ever a Wild Thing to my knowledge.

Correct, I sailed a couple of times on "Wild Apple" in 1996 - and on the old boat before that (Adams Apple).

I remember seeing AdvantEDGE (ex Ocean Skins) looking pretty sad at PDYC, I don't know if it ever got the birthday the owner wanted to give it.

I did last years S2H with an old owner of Computerland, I'll ask him if he know's anything regarding it's whereabouts since selling it.

IIRC Thriller (ex Walk on The Wild Side) is still for sale in the south of the state, happy to be corrected.

Definitely was Wild One in '98. Nth Tassie guy had bought it from John Saul in Hobart and changed the name to W/ One from Computerland Solutions. There's a Video around of her in the 2000 COTB as Wild One too. That's near 20 years ago and she has no doubt had a bunch of owners and locations since then. When she was last sold out of Melbourne in the early 2000s she wasn't in great shape. Was talking about it with John S when I sold him a Melges 32 about a year ago.

There are still two here that I know of. Fast Forward and Scavenger. 

We sold "Wild One" to a Tasmanian buyer. Not sure If Wild one was Wild thing or if UBS Wild thing was Warros boat extended and modified???

Wild One has a bow sprit but no hull extension i dont think but was converted to twin rudders IIRC.

The delivery skipper dropped the rig on the deck at Cape Leewin and she had to motor back to Busselton for repairs. 

 

Walk on the Wild Side blew over on its cradle in a storm while it was on the hard stand in Freo about 2 years ago. A tassie buyer bought her and fixed here up and it was sailed to Tassie where she went on the market after about a month of being there at a big price.....

 

As far as I know there are

-Scavenger

- Vendetta / Dolce

-Wild One

-Ocean Skins

Swanno,

Jim Inglis did design a 37 as well. There is a few of them around and Mal Hart built a few extended 37’s to 40 as well. I can’t remember any called Wild Thing. These boats perform very well as well. Mal Hart won the Melbourbe to Osaka in his 40 and “she’s the culprit” offen does very well in the southport race and other races.

The Inglis 37s were a development of Jim's earlier 36ft design, "Boundary Rider", an epic performer back in the 80's-90s with some giant killing results against much bigger boats.

I believe Mal Hart also engaged Don Jones to design structural components of these Inglis boats including the Keel attachment using a keel box and strong keel attachment to the main bulk head which he developed from his Cadibarra boats.

Hey Chucky,

That’s right, the boats were set up that way. One of the reasons for setting up the Keel box that way was for easy transport between regattas or to give you a option to have a inshore or off shore Keel options as well.

Hey Chucky,

That’s right, the boats were set up that way. One of the reasons for setting up the Keel box that way was for easy transport between regattas or to give you a option to have a inshore or off shore Keel options as well.

And here's a picture of it with a single large retaining pin that wasn't going anywhere..... also a picture of Kaos as it was then with the keel

South,

The Mal Hart boats had a slightly different set up than Kaos.

 

When we built the Inglis 40’s we made a fibreglass moulding that the  Keel fitted into. The keel had the head fitted loosely into the keel  moulding on the boat and the keel was pinned in place.  When the boat was set up right it was then back filled with chock fast to fill up the void around the keel frame.

 

The boat also had big stainless steel frames bolted either side of the moulding from memory that were bolted to the bulkhead as well.

Hi Pulpit - the first photo is from our boat which was one of the first that Mal Hart did (originally Top Cat now She's the Culprit). The second photo is from Kaos. I have the design drawings somewhere of the keel that Don Jones drew.

If my memory serves me right the reason that Kaos was on the hard in the second photo was because it was having a new keel put in and I think they also added a Sydney 38 mast in lieu of the overlapping rig with runners.

Three boats were taken off the original mould which came from one of the timber strip planked Inglis boats, but with a bit more added to the top sides

^Thanks for posting these pictures. Does anyone, with credentials, care to comment on the Box Welded - RHS style section and reliance upon top notch welding and general layout of this style of design, now that the world has moved much further down the path of experience, and especially in light of the few, but well publicised keel failures?

Certainly that retaining pin is more than stout, but with the benefit of hindsight, would the overall design/layout still be that way?

Kaos is now Matrix and that Sydney 38 mast was recently replaced

BTW was this the reason for the keel upgrade?

I was under the impression that all the Hart boats were cold molded?

All the Hart boats were e-glass and possibly kevlar in the hull. Deck was foam composite and internal bulkheads were marine ply glassed and sheathed over. The keel drawings are below:-
