None of them were Aussies so were not sure what G'Day meant.

Welcome to the forum KaylaGrace. More details would be good, this place is packed full of boat nerds and we mostly want to know what you sail.

It makes it easier for us to tell you what you are doing wrong.

Re: G'day everyone

And pictures too please. We like to judge.
If your boat is bigger and nicer than ours, then you have too much money.
If itís not, then you havenít spent enough.

Very nice, Looks a bit like an Alan Wright design, but I didn't think he dabbled in FC. Those twin keels are very practical, and FC can be a great low maintenance material if it is built properly and looked after.

Welcome. Nice lookin' yacht. (We came within days of buying a Reinke twin keel, then my dad passed and she had a deposit on her a few days later. )
