Another blast from the past, Sticky Finger (aka El Gato 3) Went very well with Leigh Hein on board, I think to 3rd or 4th (Can't find any results) at the state titles mid to late 90's at Waranga Basin. I remember it was when Glen Watson was at the pointy end. Keeping in mind this boat has a platform weight of 75+kg I think from memory...

Anyway, I have rescued the boat, its been locked away in a shed for around 15 years and was about to be put outside to make way for more toys.

I couple of minor repairs to make and a new mast to be fitted but still in very good order.

Images are too big now, will have to try another time.

Desperately needed a wash, both the boys and I think it came up pretty well.

Foredeck paint is the shot, but the rest is pretty good, a small repair to the very tip of the starboard hull, but a very easy fix.

I will have to get onto PWS shortly to source a mast, although I think I have one at the farm, I will just need to check it out.

Apologies it is actually 752 not 754.

Alister, I will be buying a new mast section mid july, if you want one as well, It would save you a trip, or if you happen to going that way, would save me a trip.
