The photo has been edited to eliminate the sign that said "Western Trucking" with a phone number according to the following format: xxxx-xxxx with no area code type prefix.

 

Judging by that and the warm clothing I'm guessing this is somewhere down in NZ, maybe S. Africa.

 

I was going to say King 40 but thats not right, nor is Ker 39. The twin wheels help somewhat, but.....

It's my new custom MacGregor 34X that I commissioned.

 

No boat is easier to sail. You can learn to sail in an afternoon. Pick a nice day with a light breeze. Take the boat to the water, launch it, fill the ballast tank and buzz around with the engine until you get the hang of it. It is no tougher than driving a car. Then set the mainsail and let the wind provide some of the power. Keep the engine running at idle to get you out of any tight places. An hour or so of this and you will have a pretty good idea of how it all works. When you are comfortable using the mainsail, raise the jib. An afternoon like this and you will be fairly accomplished.

 

To learn to sail is easy. Each MacGregor sailboat comes with a 37 page owners guide, filled with photographs and instructions, for the initial rigging of the boat, and for every phase of its operation and maintenance. It includes a well illustrated section on how to sail.

 

I figure 3 or 4 hours of practice and I'll be ready for the next TransPac! :P

It is the new Hick 40 everyone (at RYCV), and especially Peter Dusting and team have been waiting on, note the Vicroads Sign just above the bow. It's supposed to rate slightly lower than a Sydney 38 and to be sailed by 3-4 people.

Damn, looks like it will murder a Sydeny 38 on the track so if it rates in that ball park it will be a force to reckon with!!!

it's a Brenta 38. It cannot be a Brenta 42 because judging from the men the length seems to be 10m, not 12.5.

But it's not build in Italy at Adriasail shipyard as the other ones, because you cannot wear that suits in July in Italy (assuming the boat is new) and cars have different number plates

40?

 

If I look at the plebs and scale them to under 6' (the normal size around Williamstown) am guessing that boat is about 36 max.

 

Perhaps the erection?

I can't believe none of you Melbournians or Aussies picked up on the Vic Roads sign on the right hand side of the shed entrance.? Vic Roads means Victoria, Australia. And that means HICK.! Sorry, just in case it wasn't a majority decision.? LOL

 

Who said thanks to Luca Brenta.? You gotta be kidding me, a Hick design would never go anywhere near a Luca Brenta, they would be opposite ends of the scale.! No disrespect intended to either.!

The thread topic is "What" is it, not "Where" is it. Why it is where it is, I know not. But from the Hicks website, I don't see any boats with teak decks and a gap around the base of the cabin trunk, like the Brenta 38s. Custom Brenta 38, modified by Hicks?

You are a very dumb fark. Sorry Rosieberg.! The HICK wesbite is not really a website, I think the message is clear, you were told in the last 2-3 posts. The sign on the shed says VIC roads. For anyone who doesn't know what that means, it means MELBOURNE.! Like Hello.?

 

In Melbourne there are only a handful of boat builders ROSIE.! Hart Marine in Mornington, but Mal Hart says no, not one of his boats.! After that it don't reallly matter because at least 10-15 people have already identified it as a HICK design.

 

Now ROSIE if youd like to keep the guessing going , fine, it's a Custom Brenta modified by HICK, sorry Hickup Hickup.

Sorry suckers, check the waterline stripe.!!! Doo Darr.. Don't be telling me a BRENTA paints his boats all fucked up with a crooked waterline. Seriously have a look at the waterline paint stripe. It's is seriously fucked. Now believe what u want team , whoever did that was seriously cheap.

And by the way, fark yourself as well. I really don't care what 10-15 people have to say. None of them chimed in to answer my question about whether the Hicks boats have teak decks or a gap around the base of the cabin trunk. Those 10-15 people could be 180 degrees off. If you want to follow them over the reef, have at it.

 

As I said, I don't care where it is, because the question turns on what it is. It sure looks like a modified Brenta 38 to me.

Hurt? Nobody is going to get hurt here! I think this is funny as hell. It was not my intention to piss anyone off, but someone clearly is not happy about the comparison. If the ad department is pissed about having their baby compared to a Brenta 38, don't build a boat that looks like a B38! I noticed that nobody told me I was nuts and the boat looks nothing like a B38. But your word on it is good enough for me.

 

As for the others, try

Yes the boat has twin wheels, yes there are teak decks.

This place is too much fun. I often get in trouble for speaking my mind; I once told two new parents that their kid looked like Rodney Dangerfield. They did't like that very much, but I'll be damned if the little guy wasn't a Rodney.

 

But that boat is no Rodney, I'll grant you that. Very nice.

Shit, I just gotta stop going sailin" - out in a "Best boat ever built" havin" me some fun, and when I get back to the "bucket of bolts" I find all the fun I've been missin".

 

Sol - I like your style, your right, no one gave you a direct reply, but that didn't stop throwing out ya chin - Good one.

 

My guess - forgetting the road signs is in sinc with a lot of others. It is a Hick built / PD Design somewhat loosely around the Luca Brenta with some Southern Hemispere alterations, complete with some teak here and there and a somewhat crooked waterline stripe - which in real view is not crooked and a nice dose of pretty silver paint.

There - now having covered everything, please send the bootie all to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Without incrimination - as was the case the oceansailor - I do hope that it performs better than earlier model Hicks and that it is some what tougher than other boats.

 

Otherwise - an other boat to copy, if you really want to go fast - why not try a 30 year old design from old Uncle Joe and make it about 10 metres long.

 

Now there a thought - if you can't beat em !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
