so

 

psycho :twisted:

 

did ya get 'er?

 

oh gary

 

the pain

 

 An Australian B24 (named Miranda—formerly Gulf Chariot), was extended in the stern to 28' to remove the excessive stern rocker that only worked well in light weather. They also removed the main hull daggerboard and added asymmetric foils in floats (angled at approximately 25 degrees) and fitted a new, underhung and balanced rudder, rotating mast and 78 rig. This made the boat much quicker than the original, even though it was too light to ever be slow (it could be even faster with a slightly taller fat-head rig).

Ahhh, No!

 

They got back to me a day or so after I made my offer saying they'd already chopped and burnt it all. So I guess I'll be staying Euphoric for a while longer yet.

 

No drama, as I've mentioned elsewhere, I have a set of drawings to my own "Mental Octopus" design that should fulfil my wants perfectly.

 

Must check my lotto tickets!

Just to clarify, in case anyone is concerned by the statements above; the B24 Ezifold cut up is not Miranda, she still happily shares Cox's bay with Gary's many creations and her other 'flat'mates.

Although she hasn't seen any action this winter, the weather is improving and we hope to shake the cobwebs out again soon.

 

Also I contacted the owner of the website quoted above a while back correcting the gross geographical error, they responded promptly but did not have access to actually modify the website content themselves. So I guess nothing has changed there.
