If an Orana weighs 8 tonne, I will walk backwards to Bourke.

The sinks I saw a few years ago at the Miami show may have been bigger than I thought but they would not take some of my pots/pans. I like that one I saw in the pics of an Orana.

It is funny how just a few things (that might not mean anything to someone else) can turn off others.

I don't know the size of your galley gear, but an 8 qt. pot and 9x13 pan are no problem.

I was looking at some other FP then. No way the sink would take that except maybe sitting in the top 1/2 inch. Like washing a 7qt pot in the 8qt pot - a real challenge.

I gotta see the Orana then. Plans for Miami this year.

I didn't really put her through her paces, but found her very nice and easy to sail overall.
I am the new owner of JAMMIN, ORANA hull #2. Dave is right except it was 2 layers of Vinylester plus a barrier coat. One layer came with a 10 year guarantee but FP insisted we put on 2. Responses and payment were a little slow but they did eventually make good. I am generally very pleased and have found it to have nice acceleration (rather surprising so for an old mono-hull-est).

JAMMIN will be at the Annapolis show. It will be used for 'take the wheel' classes in the afternoon, so best to come early to get a feel for a used Orana (JAMMIN is not for sale but is for charter!)
