Anyone Have a Simpson Sinewave ?

We have a Simpson Sinewave 9.1 bridge deck sailing Cat. Interested in comparing notes with any one else that has one or has sailed one.
Our records a bit sketchy but think our vessel first registed about 84 in Townsville as Wanga Rua then name changed to Lynx in NSW.
Any comments on extending hulls to include steps, extend water line?

Hi, not sure there were that many Sinewaves done, but I have some pic's here of a step job I did on my 9m Simo GroundEffect.

Made a difference, definitely worth doing and pretty easy.

Hi Graham what a buzz ...you see my wife and I built Wanga Rua over a four year period at a place called Vanimo,P.N.G and sailed it to Cairns (later Townsville) in 1995. We had a young family at the time and with work and stuff not a lot of time for sailing or finishing off my pride and joy. Some guy made me an offer as he watched it deteriorating in the Ross river and he really wanted it and promised to love it forever. We reluctantly sold it .
Not long after we moved to Brisbane and lost touch until now. We still yearn for her and wonder where has she been ?
Please dont change her too much ..We would love to see her again. I have lots of photos somewhere I can dig up if your interested.
