I have no idea what it is, but it's definately not a Paper Tiger!

agree x 3 - not a paper tiger
It does kind of look like an A-Class - perhaps the measurement is wrong. The graphic on the sail looks like a cheetah to me.

ive never seen a cat that sahped in 12 foot. looking close at the pics on e(vil)bay i wouldnt argue with the 12 foot... the class insignia definately is cheetah shaped. could it be a formula 12 that someone has built and sold it with a cheap mainsail??? it would be a fast cat for a competant young teenager, or an ex jockey smile
if you have a look at the trailer wheels, 95% of themn are going to be either 13 or 14 inch rims. you wouldnt get 12 of those along the length of the hull, so its less than
14 foot

jeff you should buy it for eoin!! it would probly give the arrow a run!!

I've got 2 x 11ft ArafuraCadets and a half built F12, he's already asking when he can have his A class. Don't think I need another small cat
