Wild Thing was given a very impressive upgrade & complete renovation several years ago, from memory there was a thread on this site.  Was it a guy named Adrian?  He sold it possibly down south?

Yes, PT in New Cal.

That lines up nicely with a comment I heard yesterday that suggest a Auckland gent of some note who recently become boat free is considering going shopping in New Cal for a 'well known Young design boat'. Word is he wants to bring it home.

 

 

Shall do Thanks, Cazzate.

The 8.4's are not Rockets.  The three mentioned ones are. Prawnbroker is undergoing a long birthday at Westhaven, Positive Touch went to NC after being tootooed with in terms of a diesel in then out, and I cannot comment on the other. Think Extreme may also attract the title Rocket - still at Westhaven.

It’s a red one so probably is PT and build year is 1981 and has a heap of interior stuff that probably wasn’t there when it left here

I recall one called Buckle Up at Pine Harbour many years ago, it was red , I think it was a Rocket 31, could be wrong.

From what I know , Rocket 31s:

- Oldsmobile at Waikawa
- Positive Touch in New Cal
- Also Party Time in New Cal
- Kaos and two or three others in Aus

- Camp Freddie (extended slightly) in UK
- Zapata in Europe
- Mayhem Plus in UK
- TEOTYL, French registered ORC but that could be New Cal or France

Young 8.4s :

- R n B and What's News, AKL
- Correct with Wild Thing, think the upgrade included a wing mast, now in Tasman Bay
- Blue Dude New Cal
- YoungStar Sydney
- Gambit, Hong Kong

Know of only one Buckle Up which was a Rocket 40 in Aus, the Aussies worship it

There is also two Young 8.4s in Singapore. SF Two and can't remember the name of the other one. Both original with lifting wing keels.
