Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

It's been a long haul, but:



















She's back afloat!

A very satisfying moment.

Another was when the surveyor asked "Which was the damaged hull?"

Not that you can blame him, It's completely impossible to tell.

Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

No need. This has all been done "Above board", the repairs have been checked by an engineer as well as by the designer and surveyor. The rigging wire is going to be replaced before the rig goes back on, the entire rig will be checked also even though the rig didn't suffer any damage.

The boat is as good as new.

Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

Also no point hiding the name if it ever sells using a reputable broker, most if not all reputable brokers in Australia require disclosure of history in their sales listing agreement.

The dinghy is actually a tri hull. Bob Oram designed too.
