hi yes sold our oro that is at litle s bay a while back, good cruisy boat with lots of room, have another smaller glass cat in Akl now, there is a good narai for sale but 65k. you can get boats built cheap in the philipines i hear ? dave
name is duff 094730518 real simple steel straps wrapped around beams and down to hull sides, 4 on each beam, has workedwell for 30 years and no flexing so can add center cabin, duff has rebuilt cabin , ring him and have a look. nice trips to barrier great weather,boat went well in light winds better than windspeed and on the way out surfing at 15 knots. you got it at the right price is good , i am looking at a couple of better boats with more room at the moment, so could be selling mine before long ,its like a modern wharram concept in a way, will try and put a photo on my page. dave
you must be brave or crazy to take that on . is that the teheni that was built in thames on the wharf & sat there for some years . have you thought of using a lateen /crab claw rig ? good luck with it cheers sam
Gud day Sam!!! well a little bit of both helps, when u r contemplating a project like this. Yes this is the Teheni that was build @ the Thames, have not thought of using any other rig. Have my heart set on the junk rig. Gud luck with ur boat as well.
I'm very intrigued with your single mast junk rig design..... I don't see anything in the photos about it other than the drawing Was it built? How does it work?
It is my intention to build or modify a cat to a single unstayed mast which will use the Aerojunk rig, similar to Pete Hill's latest rig on Oryx, which I heard he recently sold.
Talk as they say is cheap, and wanting to do something and actually doing it are considerably different.......I won't live long enough to do all the things I would like to do, and have reached the age where I need to prioritize....... a sailing cat is very near the top of the list...........
