Hi Phil I am in Adelaide and will be setting up for full f16 spec as we have more f16s here than we have Taipan class legal boats. Matt as for your question the other boats were 153 155.
James sage 153 Darren Peters 155 these guys with the help from Warren Symonds built the boats the one i got was Warrens.

I wasn't aware that there was a 4th wooden Taipan built in Adelaide at that time. The other boat that was built then was AUS175 (Ready or Not), cat rigged and originally owned by Ian Verrier (ex ruckman in the SAFL). Ready or Not went to Queensland in about 2002/03 after a marriage break-up. As you know 153 is still raced out of Adelaide SC and I saw 155 in the photos taken at the last Nats in Melbourne.(Victoria).

Richard,

At least now if the pressure cleaner
breaks down you have a backup plan.

Regards,
Phill


I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.
There is no such thing as a quick fix and I've never had free lunch!

Phill,

Chris Dean has mentioned to me that the boat Danny has bought was the sister boat to James & Darryn's boats. I think the previous owner was Wayne .......? He lived in Brighton & never finished the boat. I really only know all this as we borrowed the mast of this particular boat to make a mould for carbon masts. Pitty about the section having a 4 degree twist though <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />. We managed to get the twist out of the mast to make the mould, but could not permanently perswade the mast...sorry Danny. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

Marcus,
Under the circumstances you are lucky to get a straight mould off the mast.
Co-incidently I also have a set of Taipan hulls (the 5th set I been involved with) that just need the decks put on.
Been trying to motivate myself to do this.
I lost motivation when I started the Blade project.
Hard to get motivated to finish something I don't need when I have so many other things to consume my time.

Regards,
Phill
