In the 70's (1972-1974) my grandfather, Hendrikus appeldoorn built a 23ft yacht in thurlstane Tasmania. A "Waratah twin bilge keel
masthead sloop". It was designed by DENNIS KNIGHT in Gosford N.S.W. My 'opa' died in 1989 and I am now 36 and living in Tasmania. It is my dream to find her. It was sold and sailed to King island in Bass strait around the late 70's. Using original photo's depicting the construction, I have uploaded a video to my youtube channel 23ft 'Waratah' yacht.Tasmania - YouTube
. THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH
TO GET MORE VIEWS OK. I genuinely want to know what happened to ORION 3 and where she is today. If by chance someone out there knows of her existance and current
location I would love to hear from them. God may well smite you if you don't help me LOL. email
or call me directly on mobile number :0457 079 242 (in Australia) if you have ANY information on this yacht.
