Wilf O'Kell 46 Owners / Builders

Anyone with access to plans and/or sail plans for an O'kell 46 centre cockpit ketch please contact me as I only have the main drawing of what was designed as "Whim-a-Way".
Any help appreciated
Dave

Just an add on, is there anyone who knows what happened to Wilf O'Kell, even if he is still alive, or even P Bouman who once upon a time drew up Wilf's plans for him.

Hi,
I have an O'Kell 46 'WHIM-O-WAY' Drawn up in 1972. I bought her with no masts (its a Ketch) and all I have is the 'General Arrangements' plan sheet. Did your dad keep a copy of the plans he created as I am desperate to obtain a sail plan for her. I have no real idea even of mast size alone the rest of it.Tientos is the only other Ferro 46 I have been able to find and she was converted to a sloop early on. I love my yacht and the way she handles a big sea (bass strait in Jan this year) even under engine, so I just want her to be right.
I will call on the Weekend if thats ok
Thanks a million
Dave

Re: Wilf O'Kell 46 Owners / Builders

Hi Aqua de vida, Dad was very happy to hear that, it was nice of you to say so!
I am putting an ad on here for him as he wishes to sell his business/his plans for a full and final sale. Would you please spread the word to anyone who may be interested? He is on facebook as Wilf O'Kell or Wilf E. O'Kell or I can be contacted on 0410831538. This is his ad:
"Wilf O'Kell's boat plans full and final sale. Large range of proven designs from 25 to 80 feet, mono and multi-hulls, some patterns. Ferro Cement. $183,000. Income assured. Email or phone Ngairini if interested and she will supply my phone number."
