Hi team I've been sneeking into the forums
for a little while and have finally bitten the bullet.
I live Darwin and work
in Arhnem Land in the tropical north of Australia
. My little 30ft ply boat
sits peacefully at her berth in Darwin waiting for my weekly attention when I fly home.
Shadowfax III was sold
to me as a Van De Stadt and given her sailability I have no doubt that she is. She is strong and fast and has a mind of her own. As to which model there is some debate I sent VDS a pic of her asking if they would claim her and they replied that she is a Black Soo but the keel
is not the same as in the Black Soo drawings that VDS sent me. Digging through some papers that came with her someone has highlighted a Plymouth. The previous owner told me she was built in South Africa
so potentially she could be a Royal Cape One Design. If anyone knows of her or origins, history
etc. I would love to here from them.
I look forward to occassionally getting involved on these forums
