No confusion here. McGrath Nicol claim to be receivers so I guess that's what they are. They sold the business as a going concern which is what receivers often do.

Indeed they do. Quite likely only the bank (lender)got paid and maybe not all they were owed.

All the more reason why Grumpy and his partners would start brawling over the marina. Chances are that if they were still owed $$$$$ even after getting Syd's money the bank called up their guarantees.

Rather than fling your drivel in my direction how about disclosing the receiver's financial statement about the boatyard's position. Every unpaid tradesman who worked there and was owed money would have received one. Know any ?

What debts did Syd's money pay ( and not pay ) off ? Chances are Grumpy still owes heaps but I have no details.

How about you stump up some details cos your dopey posts make it clear that you know, or pretend to know, even less than I do ? I didn't name ANZ, you did so reveal all or fuck off.

yes they are two different places, as you say north and south of the bridge (NSW Maritime in 'tween)

what i am saying is that he is involved in BOTH


Two different places, albeit close by. Syd is North of the Bridge while Grumpy and cohorts are South.

.
BOTH sides


at the risk of complicating further:

also involved in both iterations of SCM. The initial 50 mill$ investor backed one that went to receivership, and now also in the current setup


OK I forgot the Machiavellian SH landscape, so......

Rabbits and Son in partnership with the NSW Govt form Super Yacht Aust along with some under employed Super Yachters with the express intention of accessing harbour side crown land.

Rabbit son opens Syd Boathouse on said foreshore land.

Grumpy and Rabbits etc open Syd SY Marina and City Marine, but things dont go well.

City Marine goes under and Vicious buys it for pennies and Grumpy stays on.

The Super yacht Marina including a berth @ Walsh bay without floating pontoon or shore power goes pear shaped as well. Grumpy and the puppet master almost fake Rabbits into forking out 2M when he realises he can wait and buy it from the receiver, minus debts for less. See City Marine above.

Meanwhile different strokes alternates between firing spit balls across the Bay and rolling about on the floor laughing, while old Noaksy turns in his grave.

Around this time Lard and co have taken over the Newcastle docks for their own Super Yacht Marina!! Who'd a thought?

How did I do from a distance?

By the way, there isn't a single thing capable of being either cut or pasted which names ANZ as the banker to the boatyard - apart from you.

Not much yet. I can tell you that the boatyard was officially wound up, so the receiver turned into a liquidator. That tells you the debts were huge.

reportedly over 52 lost by the original investors

bought for 5 - 6 by a Co who has directors who were the original mgt, good news for trading on as they know the business

sav, look for the other prize too, the 'not quite attached' Longitude offices, in the first instance part of SCM, separate lot when offered by the receiver

normal for a super-maxi being run professionally

i.e WO is totally re-done before a race/campaign much like a F1 car or top-fueller

I think it will be challenging for corrected assuming that WO is competing, and waiting in the wings (2nd) for line if the opportunity arises

I guess that's the burning question then. How much will Syd commit to a one off charter for Hobart? His record is not good. Personally I'd love to see it happen but I'm not hopeful.

Any intel on when GR is heading South?

Is this race ideal for a boat that you describe ?

This soundbite from the Antigua Sailing Week website,Geoff and his good mate Syd sure do get around. Anybody know anything about the boys new ride?



"In CSA 1A, Geoff Hill’s Santa Cruz 72, Antipodes scored its first win of the regatta. Geoff Hill has been to Antigua Sailing Week many times before but, surprisingly, this is the first visit to the Caribbean’s longest running regatta for the true Australian sailing legend. At 85 years of age, Syd Fischer is probably the oldest competitor at Antigua Sailing Week. Syd shares a record of five America’s Cup challenges and has won just about every classic yacht race going, including the Fastnet and the Sydney Hobart Race, which Fischer has competed in on 40 occasions.

‘It’s a long flight to get here from Australia but I have to say it has been worth it, great conditions similar to Hawaii when I used to compete there in the Kenwood Cup. This is my first visit to Antigua but I have enjoyed the sailing so far and it was great to get a win today. We have only had the boat for a very short time and it always takes a bit to get a new yacht up to speed.’

Antipodes beat Peter Harrison’s Sojana in today’s race by less than a minute. However Sojana has a virtually unassailable lead in the division. Jan Rupert’s Tripp 75, Blackbird is in third."

You obviously dont know Syd very well. He spends what is absolutely necessary and thats it. That said, yes his record is impressive, perhaps even more so because of the afore mentioned.

Steaks could have won in Freo if given even a fraction of the budget spent on the Kookas.

They should have taken a page out of the NYYC's operations and ran a 'selection' series, not an 'elimination' series. S & K was coming-on at the end, but had lost too much to be considered. The NYYC knew, from various defenses, that the fastest boat at the start of the season may not be the best boat at the end, when it counts.

and yet, despite all that his boats don't just 'get' to Hobart

they place & win, place with predictable boring regularity

that is the final judgement of boat preparation, and that is that, actions and results speak louder than words, incl internet words

you remember the KILLER race of 1998 with 30 mtr seas

3rd, and 4th over the goddamn line

tell me about a boat with compromised preparation getting that result, and i'll come back with another 3 decades of Hobart 'Results

I can also talk of more recent staff than your stint

The prep on these Rags results is a full-time nigger 5-7 days a week minimum, at at times TWO of them

now he has a owner or co-owner-lessor to pay or apportion maint, on top of that control of the most advanced new-ish yacht facility available

pls show me again that anecdotally and in light of current events/resources that GRs prep is might be lacking

btw i've heard all the loaf of bread, no butter and unsliced tomatoes Victualling stories (cutting somesones lunch - tomatoes with a giveaway plastic butter knife fr/ Mcdonalds is a feat only a resourceful sailor or rigger could do huh)

Was going to be sailed/delivered on water to Oz...now being shipped, so I heard.

They made it around all the marks/islands/etc at Samui Regatta just fine...but did have an issue with propulsion power.

Geoff and Syd looked like they were having a great time though.

As told at Samui: Boat going to Singas then shipped to Sydney. Hull taken off deck and lengthened + widened (True storey). Then they feel they have a boat that could be a runner up to Oats and Co. with 20% of the cost.........Now have just heard time is running out for Hobart and mods may not go that far at this point.

Time will tell.

Nice to hear that sailing on board at Samui was pleasurable, calm and organised......no big heads this time around (just repeating a mate).

Absolutely. It isn't a cheap club, but 2 owners of Yuuzoo run a business with the same name from Singapore. Single membership is as follows:

Membership closed as ONE°15 achieves target of 3,850 members on 27 December 2007. The remaining memberships available will be “by invitation of the Chairman” only. The Club’s prevailing entrance fee for individual (transferable) membership is at $60,888.

Genuine risk (per my normal luck with seeing those sorts of boats) wasn't at Sentosa on Thursday but Yuuzoo was. Looking like it needs a bit of loves with patches of the carbon fiber looking stickers on the transome peeling off. It was pissing down so I didn't get any photos. The fighter jets that were doing high speed passes overhead were more interesting.

For anyone non local who happens to ever try to go to that marina, just catch a cab. After an 1 hr 45 minutes, a bus and a tram, we ended where we started and called a cab which had to do two U turns before she found the marina.

Yeah, I'd heard that Genuine Risk and Donnybrook (heavily modded SC70) were a cheap package deal and that Geoff and Syd went halves with the intention of using Donnybrook as a cruiser/gentleman's racer and using GR as a line honours chaser - including hull mods to stretch her out to 100ft.

I then heard that the expense of modifying GR to add 10 foot was crazy and not worth the time/effort/money so Syd decided to throw the dice/cash and just buy Loyal for a serious crack at the Hobart race.

By all accounts though Syd enjoyed the most recent Southport race on the TP52 and was helping the blokes wool kites in the middle of the night. If I'm still batting at that level when I'm 80+ I'd be cheering (not that I can afford to live much past 65).

Last I heard she had returned to Cairns a week or so ago. Don't know if she's underway again yet.

The original plan wasn't to be a line-honours contender against WOXI, just that the TP is getting to be a bit of a bumpy ride for Syd. Plan A was 68'. GR was mainly a deal for Asia - I don't think the lengthening was ever seriously planned, she's always been criticised for being too narrow as it is. [Edit: and as Jason said, the cost of modding GR would have been ridiculous.] With this year's S-H looking unlikely for GR, Loyal must have become available at the right price. There aren't many boats in Australia that would have suited Syd's needs and wants - the fact that Loyal took line honours last year wouldn't have been a big factor IMHO.

croosing bloggers 23 july ! :


We decided that the safe anchorage of the trinity inlet at Cairns was a better option. Later that night (around 8pm) we heard on the VHF that there was a boat grounded in the entrance to the inlet and was in need of assistance, Mac and I went out in the rubber duck to have a look, buy the time we got there the boat (a 90 foot racing mono named “Genuine Risk”) had freed itself from the bottom and was tacking down the channel. We came along side and the skipper explained that they had no motor and could only sail and had done so since the Torres Straights. It was decided that we would act as a tug and assist them in getting them along side the outside berth at the port. It all went well and with a bit of pushing we got them safely tied up. They where all very thankful and we where invited to have a look aboard the next day. We went and had a look the next morning it was an amazing boat but had been neglected and the new owners where getting her to Sydney for a refit.

Probably because I think she is now up on the hard at SCM. But it could just be one of those new lightweight power line poles poking up over the bridge......
