It's amazing what you find just laying around in some people's back yard. It's had a bit of dirt/ mould on the hulls (see bow shot) I'm hoping to get it sanded and a light layer of filler on it, then sanded off and painted i'll keep you all posted richard
Finally out of my current "obligation" with the worst run medical organization in the world in July. Back to the real world. Wife works part time in Michigan now and I start full time there in August. Rochester Hills, suburb of Detroit. Should have plenty of time to travel for the most part. I am keeping the house in Navarre and the HT, which I am only half owner of, will be down here too. Now the question is- would a Blade do well in the chop of Lake St Clair or even Lake Michigan? Timbo- BTW... we are putting risers on the rear beam of the HT.. ought to improve performance/speed downwind in moderate/significant chop. I will need to post pics.

There are some sailing clubs on Lake St. Clair as I recall, I was there about 25 years ago, maybe they have cats by now?
Have you seen any pictures of Pete Johnstone's HT? He did the whole "Pimp My Ride" treatment, including raising both beams I think. See if you can find "The Bleading Edge" on Google and look at the pictures of his boat.
the photos i posted of the taipan that i got was also from a back yard its 11 years old and it is brand new and has never seen sand paper or water the guy just lost interest.The brother and sister of this boat both have won national mk1 championships here in AUS. All I had to do was a little bogging and fair up hulls for paint. Painting will be done in a few weeks will keep everyone informed thanks Danny
