FWIW, Wild thing (the 98' Supermaxi) is on the market. Although an amazing boat, she was always a little bit of a compromise... her owner probably didn't have quite the spending power of "Croaky" Crichton (Alfa Romeo) and Bob Oately (Wild Oates), so Wild thing was always a little bit in their shadow. Now the new generation of Supermaxis are coming out (Speedboat, Leopard
, etc) and some super-competitive pocket maxis, that although they won't beat the Supers across teh line, will give them curry on corrected IRC time (Moneypenny, Posebud, Numbers et. al.) so Wild Thing just isn't on the pace any more.
Sadly, she will probably end up at "raceboat graveyard" (Airlie Beach or Hamilton Island), taking toursts around the bay, like so many sad illustrious boats of former years (Condor, Ragamuffin, etc)
