Thank you for your pointed comment on the Stiletto
Thinwater as I have not heard of them but I see they look a lot like the original Seawinds and can see why they would perform so well under motor
and sail. Just a little too spartan for an older bloke as I did own a small Wharram
40 years ago in Port Moresby PNG which was even more spartan. I sailed to Cairns on a larger Wharram
couple of months ago in 30k winds which was a vast improvement with a real bridgedeck custom cabin
but still somewhat spartan and still short on speed, though felt very safe.
Downunder I did see a 34ft Oram power cat advertised up the coast from Brisbane
which did suit close to my preferred dimensions. Geoff Cruse, a respected marine surveyor
had also flagged Orams to me as a possibility. I have been trying to locate Bob Oram to get an opinion on which model may suit best and if any had been adorned with a rag and stick with any success.
So if anyone has contact with Bob Oram maybe you could ask him for me as I do respect he has retired, as I have been trying to do for the past year.
