From the distance, it looks like an older Leopard.

With the new photos it is clearly a Schionning. Cosmos or wilderness design.

Re: Cat on the rocks

Its got caught on the rocks as the tide was going out, 10 metre tide, Each way,
Those tides flow very quickly, You need to be on the ball up there,

Re: Cat on the rocks

I am surprised so little damage being up on point rocks like that. I had my doubts about Schionning's double skin bottoms without any real reinforcement but that boat seems to have held up fine.

Re: Cat on the rocks

But, what was the outcome? I have not been able to determine how it played out!

Re: Cat on the rocks

Jim, likewise, I have not seen anything that says how they got it off and what damage there was. The Western Australian newspaper article does not say they got it off. Someone else stated that it was back in Broome.

Friends of ours have told us that they were anchored next to them in Broome a few weeks back, presumably before this happened.

Re: Cat on the rocks

The Paper said it had very little damage and it went to a nearby beach to fix temporary repairs,
If it wasnt moving at the time the tide dropped, There would be little damage any way, A few holes poked thru from the pointy rocks, Maybe,
They waited 9 hours to float it off,

Re: Cat on the rocks

This article implies they simply floated off on the next flood - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa...plug-on-yacht/

I believe it is a Schionning Cosmos 1250, built around Perth called 'KOOLA 2'. The original builder may have sold the boat though, so not sure who has it now. Great photos!

Re: Cat on the rocks



Not that uncommon to park a cat on the rocks down this way either.

And no it's not photo shopped.

The comment was by Ben, the designers's son, but he plays a very active part ion the design business so I would take it as a comment from Schionning Designs, I am sure they are not happy to see their boat on the rocks, equally I am sure they are proud of the way it seemed to stand up to the grounding.

Typical Cosmos's are western red stripped plank builds so no end grain balsa in the hull.
