Greetings from Queensland

Hi,
I have just joined up. I live in Queensland Australia about 3 hours drive north from Brisbane. I am building one of my designs, a Scarab 32 in foam sandwich and hope to have it finished in 12-18 months, will keep it on a mooring in Tin Can Bay.

Re: Greetings from Queensland

Ray is somewhat modest. He is a very talented designer who designs a range of very nice trimarans, I owned one and it was a very sweet boat. I will probably end up with one again when I down size.

Re: Greetings from Queensland

G'Day Ray,

Welcome to CF. It's good to have another designer on the forum... I look forward to your inputs on technical subjects.

We pass through TCB fairly often, and we look forward to seeing your new boat bobbing about on her mooring one day.

Cheers,

Jim
