Nice, Alan is a well respected designer, with some great boats to her credit. And NZ produced a lot of good ferro boats.

Get hold of a book called 'the Totorore voyage'. Its about a smaller wooden version of your boat sailing around the world and to Antarctica. A very good read.

Owergoinmateoarightdidjaveagudweekend?....is a well used alternative....and the quicker the better otherwise it may not be understood by us Australians.
