It is my understanding that Walter Knoop was the designer
. There are a quite few of them around. His brother dick built some of them. One, at least, is a regular competitor in our local races here.
Walter is still alive and kicking. I might, at a pinch, be able to provide a telephone number for Walter (but I won't post it here - send me a PM if interested). Alternatively, you could write to Walter care of Bellerive Yacht Club (Tasmania) - he is a member
there and still fairly active. Either way, he would probably be able to give you all the info that you need
My impression, having seen them around is that they are a good sea-worthy cruiser racer
, more cruiser than racer
, but still will sail creditably well.
Were you looking at a particular one, or just in general?
