There is a good chapter on the updates Cookie made to Krisis in one of the 'blokes and boats' books that was published 10-15 years ago.  Apparently he was going to sell Krisis to get something more cruising orientated, but then got his tape measure out and started making a few additions....

whoe ever buys her has to keep her on the current mooring - at least until I get my boat back in the drink.  Its thoroughly theraputic watching the sun rise and beaming off her topsides while enjoying a freshly steamed long black!

With so much coastline, it was almost inevitable that New Zealand would spawn a nation of sailors. People like Danny, who, aged four, virtually moved aboard his rubber dinghy; aged eight, taught himself to sail a trimaran, and aged twelve bought a near-derelict Hartley 16 and restored it. Also featured is Duncan and his trimaran,"Krisis", which won the first Coastal Classic in 1982. Much slower, but no less interesting, is "Destiny", a pirate ship that runs on waste canola oil collected from takeaway outlets.
