OK you Sydney 36 plonkers, who's still following this thread...?????

We've made a new video (or the first in a while worth watching) - The 48nm Coventry reef race last Saturday. Was pretty full-on. Gets better towards the 5.00 mark.

Enjoy.

Poods ;-)

....That would be the learner / driver that still has his P-plates on at 30kts off the breeze.... :blink:

We actually felt pretty good until that wipe out. Hence the slight tone off frustration in my voice.... :P

We had a great day out - First time ever surfing in that sort of seastate & breeze - Buying bigger blocks this week! ISAF & river sailing te next month or so, so probably wont get out like that again for a bit.

Poods ;)

Frankenyacht was not so hot in the two windward leewards at Airlie.

Much better in the longer races where they could stretch out and use their knowledge gained from having sailed there so often.

Well sailed boat but a tough act to follow for a new owner... or for (most) other S36CRs for that matter.

ww/lw are still our weakness. We's hates a breeze up the clacker. We desperately try to sail the angles / numbers, but takes serious discipline. Old story?? Sometimes when we have a reglar crew / helm combo hasppening it works real goood Get those soaks "ease away!!! happening!!! But alll good. When the angle is good (which is often), we hum!

We love our Syndey 36 :wub:

:lol:

had a young fella tell me they did 25 plus on a CR the other day. took a while to get off the floor and stop laffin. so yes...Poods has broken the mythical 16.6 and done 17. there's only one 36 that can do it and that's TWU. bet there was a fine jet of spray going straight down the companionway.

Yea for sure. Those boats go very weird when pushed to the limit...and beyond.

We buried the beak-end and spun it going nearly 15 speed in 27 kts TWS sliding down a nice roller in King's Cup in my BH36 many years ago during one of those rare, super windy, sunny Phuket days. Superb!

Never saw the mythical 17...hmmm. This would sound wicked on the way there though ;)

In God we trust. Everyone else must provide data.




I've attached the plot of the day's race, along with some data from the geep. It clocked us at 15kt average over 14 seconds. On the log (calibration had been checked) we had >17kts B)

A mighty fine day on the ocean (until we wiped out & blew the kite block....) :(

A couple of knts more & it's critical velosity for a Syd38, I couldn't imagine the 36 doing more than 20knts IMHO

EVO my precious little S36 plonker!!! We are one step ahead of you...

http://youtu.be/-dKXsw_s2XA

... a little concept video we did about 6 months ago. Not sure if it is funny or just weird, but see it through...... I have to stop doing these vids peesed! DOH! Just made a koont of myself again ;)

I tips my hat to Captain Carlos - His mighty keel repairs gave us the strength & confidence to do what we do, and also helped us with a 150kg weight gain & 50 IRC rating points B)

DC my friend, I totally believe the Bass Strait story. John & the boys told us many stories of the speeds they achieved surfing to Gero, so I tips me hat to you too!! And they would NEVER let the numbers get in the way of a good beer tale :P But we are just not that tough..... :o


But let there be no more talk of launching Sydney yachts from sky scrapers!!!! Let us celebrate the best thing that Sydney has produced other than Sydney draft beer (1983) and "Steak & Kidney" (1987)....!!!!! :lol:

I'm excited!!!!

that's rubbish....how would anyone know what she actually weighed previously? Especially anyone from there.....you have much to learn about Sydney yachts poods.

were you actually told that??? oh boy....she would have been lighter....not heavier. dopey facks need someone to blame for not doing their homework properly at a guess. Just not possible to have come out of the shed heavier mate. Look elsewhere

Her rating changed with new sails and an endorsed cert....done there. Never checked here and then there's a history to that as well. Ask Ray Carless.

anyway...onya and thanks for calling me little. that hasn't happened since i was eight.

merry merry excitement mate. keep the vids coming. they're great

The Byzantine workings of Sydney yachts! :o I have come to understand the less I know of this, the wiser I am. ;)

So where do the S36 weights for IRC come from?

I note from the certs that they are all a bit different, so I assume that it is not a standard factory weight. I'm pretty sure John never weighed TWU, and I assume ray did not weigh her either? Notwithstanding that, she came up 150kg heavier to her previous weight when we stripped her out for the scales 6 months ago. I told a lie - IRC went from 1.064 to 1.057, a bit due to sails sizes, but I belive most due to weight. We've since crept up to 1.059 with new bigger main.

Is now a good time for me to shut up? :lol:

But wait, there is still time for some more shameless self promotion, and another TWU win - Best Dressed yacht in the Chrismas twlight sail this week....

Have a great Chritsmas & All the best for 2012! :D

Yup! :)

It's now in HKG and getting a new keel (designed by Andy Dovell too!) so she can meet the offshore STIX number requirements.

Still a very competitive boat (the original BH36) and one of my faves (that I've owned). Now called "Talking Head" in RHKYC...don't know, maybe owner is in broadcasting or something like that.

So what is the definitive list of S36 types / models, and the differences..?? I figured the Whistler results would flush out the LH boys B)

LH is a BH36..?? Is that mast head no..??

Whistler - MBD36 - Is fractional rigged yes..??

...and then the various Sydney 36 models came along a bit later..?? S36's had slightly deeper keels I believe.

But they are all of the same peerage..?? :unsure:

Should I give up my quest to understand the Sydney 36 lineage.... Or is it just way too early in the new year.... :lol:

the fracs were the MBD sunsail boats iirc. 7/8th rig

MH's were the originals BH 36's....keel shape on all of them changed with twu...several times....to what the CR's are today....only a few (?) made with the swim step stern. CR changed the deck.

sail what ya got....potentialy the best all rounder though only scored a few times in real comp.

there is no lineage...they are all different and the build quality varies as much as their weight. best build is the original. LH. daylight second

Just a roughy, but here goes:

Original boats had the larger mast head rigs, a beut looking navy blue boat called Kingtide was the original timber plug. Local hero, Tuffies Foxy Lady, the original Amante amongst others. The original BH36's.

In that build process, Sunsail had about 6 dumbed down versions built with shorter rigs for the charter fleet. These included one of the boats that Evo mentioned up thread. Saltshaker amongst others. Definitely mast head rigs, just shorter than the earlier IMS models.

After those, there was a great boat called Pamela C built for a car dealer in Pittwater. It had a carbon mast with non-overlapping rig. It had the same keel as the IMS boats but I believe that has been changed since. It did very well in the early days of IRC and was a well campaigned boat that was put together well. The Carbon mast was a glamour for it's time.

Next cab of the rank was a current MHYC boat but was originally for a pittwater owner called "Stormaway". 2nd boat with a swept back rig, although this one was alloy. Conventional poles but has since been retro fitted with a bowsprit I think. This boat was the first with a heavier T bulb fitted to the keel.

Following on from that, Sydney Yachts launched the "Sports" which was basically Stormaway but with a long retractable bowsprit. TWU was one of the first with Supernova and a QLD boat which is still on the market called Springfield or somthing like that all similar boats. There were about 5 or 6 of these built. Supernova had a stepped in stern, but still an enclosed cockpit.

After these boats, a new deck mould was built, a smaller fixed/plug in bowsprit added and a new refined keel and possibly rudder was fitted, this became the CR. Plenty of these built, one of the first was the new Amante. The old IMS/masthead Amante was sold to Hobart and became Pieces and now Whistler. It now has the swept back rig but still the original keel AFAIK. As I said, a couple of handfuls made of this model.

One of the last was The Philosphers club. Less said about this franken boat the better. Ugliest boat on the water today. Stripped out downstairs, tiller steer, stern scoop, extended dick on the bow to allow for bigger jibs etc etc....

I know there will most likely be a few errors in the above but I reckon it makes a good story.....

Whistler has a Syd 38 rig in it and the sistership down at Kettering is masthead and both are very different to a Syd 36 ie more freeboard narrower and narrow stern

Maram then Amante now Picses originally had masthead with checks now has masthead with swept spreaders

Had IMS type keel not t keel

That boat was just a fucking disgrace when launched

Owner left racing for good

It had the same keel as the IMS boats but I believe that has been changed since. It did very well in the early days of IRC and was a well campaigned boat that was put together well. The Carbon mast was a glamour for it's time.

Next cab of the rank was a current MHYC boat but was originally for a pittwater owner called "Stormaway". 2nd boat with a swept back rig, although this one was alloy. Conventional poles but has since been retro fitted with a bowsprit I think. This boat was the first with a heavier T bulb fitted to the keel.

Following on from that, Sydney Yachts launched the "Sports" which was basically Stormaway but with a long retractable bowsprit. TWU was one of the first with Supernova and a QLD boat which is still on the market called Springfield or somthing like that all similar boats. There were about 5 or 6 of these built. Supernova had a stepped in stern, but still an enclosed cockpit.

After these boats, a new deck mould was built, a smaller fixed/plug in bowsprit added and a new refined keel and possibly rudder was fitted, this became the CR. Plenty of these built, one of the first was the new Amante. The old IMS/masthead Amante was sold to Hobart and became Pieces and now Whistler. It now has the swept back rig but still the original keel AFAIK. As I said, a couple of handfuls made of this model.

One of the last was The Philosphers club. Less said about this franken boat the better. Ugliest boat on the water today. Stripped out downstairs, tiller steer, stern scoop, extended dick on the bow to allow for bigger jibs etc etc....

I know there will most likely be a few errors in the above but I reckon it makes a good story.....

Whistler is not Picses but a local build

rudder had an occasional habit of leaving the boat at the wrong moment....not in my experience...whew....they all have an issue with the stock, radial and config, ahhh syderneee boats

LH was still in awesome shape last time i saw her. great boat

It was in Airlie RW about 18 months ago if I remember right. Chatted with the crew briefly. Is Tuffie right that it is now in HK?


No JS - my old BH36 is in HKG now.

now called Talking Head-->Ex-FoxyLady2--> Ex-HaiMin--> Ex-PlaLoma--> Ex-Ray Roberts' BH36 (I think...)

Thanks for the info guys. What a fucked up piece of bastardy lineage! I wasn’t exactly expecting blue blooded royalty, but that is just a sack of monkey shit.

Just a roughy, but here goes:

Original boats had the larger mast head rigs, a beut looking navy blue boat called Kingtide was the original timber plug. Local hero, Tuffies Foxy Lady, the original Amante amongst others. The original BH36's.

In that build process, Sunsail had about 6 dumbed down versions built with shorter rigs for the charter fleet. These included one of the boats that Evo mentioned up thread. Saltshaker amongst others. Definitely mast head rigs, just shorter than the earlier IMS models.

Is Philosphers measured for IRC with all these mods? Sounds like it is no longer of the same design year!

Nope.

Pisces is still Pisces.

Keel was owner modded -- more lead I understand.

http://l2h.com.au/2011/11/pisces/pisces-2/

Rig is still MH, but swept.

Sailed against these guys in the Rolex passage series and followed their run to Hobart, well sailed, maybe they should have done the M.H.Y.C. short offshore series, if they were here, against Philosphers Club, Onya, La Altra Donna, etc, to see how well an earlier Sydney 36 could go in short circuit stuff???

They don't want to listen, they just want to believe!

BTW what is story with the other one at Kettering that I have never seen off its mooring.
Blue and Red stripes with MH rig
Who built them both as well?

Maram started with in line 3 spreader tin mast with over lapping headsails and IMS keel

Sold and became Amante

Sold and became Picses and new owner over time went swept masthead moves chain plates to gunwhale and swept the spreaders and now uses non overlaps

Also added lead to get AVs I think as sure a hell did not have it as Maram

Original owner go completely shafted by Sydney Yachts.

Ordered the boat just before Sydney got the AC 40 deal and had to make the 40s so went to back of production line and when boat delivered is was just crap. (like mastsheet base fixed to cockpit floor with self tappers)

But sure was quick in light air!

Pamela C is now in Geelong renamed Peregrine and has done well for her owner there too. Still a very fast 36fter by any standards and a better boat offshore with the closed in transom. Carbon rig is still a glamour. This 1999 iteration of the design gave Sorro a bit of a hurry up in some of their races when 'Philanderers Club' was down here. Her owner now keen to move on so Peregrine/Pammy C is up for sale and a good buy for someone looking for a proven fast Syd 36. Read further back up this thread for references as to how good!.

moulds on ebay now !!

47 could make a motivated homebuilder a hell of a cruiser


Not a bad starting point for $100


Your right, $100 bucks what a great price!!!!

Now add in the cost to move the mould anywhere and then storage.

I've owned moulds before and now and just because they are cheap it doesn't mean they are a bargain.

The trouble with them is the cost to store them if you don't have the space. The other thing with these moulds is you need to have a Crain to move them about every time you want to work on them.

In saying that they are a great buy if you live close by and have the room for them.

Do any of you lot know if "Hydroil" still exist in Sydney, and have some contact details for them?

They do the hydraulic backstays of yachts, ours needs a little TLC. No results in gear anarchy.

Failing that, can you recomend a reliable marine hydraulic contact......??

Thanks ;)

Totally endorse Fleet Hydrol up at Brookvale - they serviced the vang and backstay on our old boat and do good work.

Poods, what's the ETA for the mighty TWU and crew into Sydney pre Hobart? As I recall I owe you a sail (and a thousand beers), so thought you and Squinty may like a twilight spin around our humble pond?

She should be east of Perth by now, acheduled to arrive Sydney City Marine next Wed. We are flying over Tue arvo, probably stay at the salubrious Vibe Hotel in Rushcutters bay. Last time I was there having a beer was 1985! Plan is to have her back together & into CYC at beer o'clock Friday. Then finalise Cat 1 survey. We'll be back in November for her first hit-out in the Cabbage Patch Race.

So Local hero heading south, Whistler no doubt, looks like we have ourselves a race! ;)

BTW - HTF do you upload an image now???? I'm trying to put a few photos up, but my fortran brain just aint doing it.

FYI Poodle, the term "Westie" has a completely different connotation in the eastern states. I'll leave it to you to find out.

Oh and Poods I've made peace with MHYC on your behalf... :lol:

I think we've added 2 percetnage points to the total GDP of the sailing industry recently!

Thanks for the diplomacy - we were far too excited to stay away, considering our boat had been stripped down on a truck just 24 hours earlier. ;)

We had the best time in spite of all the hard work. The welcome from CYC was great, and we really enjoyed getting out amonsgt it on the harbour and ocean :lol:

Sheet no! I would not have been able to enjoy the superb bacon & egg burgers each morning at the CYC!

Just glancing at all the vids & photos of the week in Sydney, I'll have to add muslims to the list of "apology letters" for all our little indiscretions!! :lol:

westie culture :P

A young Afghani gets signed up by the Bulldogs...

Noel Cleal flies to Kabul to watch a young Afghani star in a local game

of rugby played with an inflated goat's bladder. He is suitably

impressed, gets on the phone to Des Hasler, signs the boy on the spot

and arranges for him to come over to Sydney.



Two weeks later The Doggies are 12 - 0 down to The Sea Eagles at home

with only 20 minutes left - it's been a hard day at the office.

Hasler gives the young Afghani winger the nod, and on he goes.



The lad is a sensation, playing an absolute blinder. He scores 3

tries in 20 minutes, converts all of them himself from out wide and wins

the game for Canterbury . The Belmore Oval fans are delighted, the

players and the coach are delighted and the media love the new star of

Rugby League.



When the player comes off the ground he phones his mum to tell her about

his first day in the NRL.



"Hello mum, guess what?" he says "I played for 20 minutes today, we were

12 - 0 down but I scored 3 tries - they call it a hat-trick - and we

won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the press, they all love me - I'm

so happy."



"Just wonderful," says his mum, "Let me tell you about my day ...

... Your father got shot in the street, your sister and I were ambushed

and assaulted - she would have been raped but for a passing police

vehicle. Your brother has joined a local gang of looters and set fire

to some buildings and all while you tell me that you were having a great

time!!"



The young lad is very upset. "What can I say mum, but I'm really sorry."



"Sorry?!!! Sorry?!!!" says his mum,



"It's your bloody fault we came to Bankstown to live in the first place!"
