    Hi 44C
    It's John Kehoe here. I've only posted a few times before, but I follow the forum a bit. We sail a 42ft Simpson Liahona tri and are based at Lake Macquarie.
    An Oram44C, has come up for sale in Sydney and I wondered if you are familiar with the boat and it's history. As an Oram44C owner from Qld I'm guessing that you may be. Is it the one that you said recently in a post that you helped apply a coppercoat antifouling some years back? That ties in with my understanding of some of the boat's history.
    Looks like the boat has had a sad few recent years, but we are going to have a look at it. If you are familiar with the boat would you be prepared to spare me a little time to discuss it?

    Best regards, and hope to hear from you.

    Hi 44C

    Pete here. I see you have an Oram44. Partner and I have been looking for out first Cat. Maia has just come up for sale. We have plans to sail Perth coast for a few years (learn Yacht and upgrade what is needed), then sail Oz coast with plans of Indo etc and Pacific. Scuba is our passion (partner instructor/Manages a shop), so we would load a compressor and dive gear. Is this a realistic option for the 44c. Is she cable of blue water passages? Hard to find this info. Hope you can provide some realistic advice for a couple of very green but keen future Cat owners Cheers Pete

    Thank you for posting the build photos. I can see you think for yourself by your choice of core material. I'm about to really start building a catamaran and I'm looking at between 38'-44'. Popular talk is that 44' is crazy compared to a 38' build. I'm wondering what your opinion is having built a 44' catamaran. Can you see any wisdom staying closer to the 38' length?

    Hello 44,

    Three days ago, on the 17th, we again had a post of yours reported to us as being in breach of the "be nice" rule. Accusing a member of CF of living in a "personal looneyverse" can only be seen as a personal insult: it fails the "be nice" test.

    You have the option to use the "report post" button if you think someone is being rude to you, rather than going immediately upon the attack. We note that your postings have become less rude over the past two years, so we know you can "be nice".

    But upon discussion the moderators agree that you will no longer fail to respond to other members in a gentlemanly fashion. There are two ways in which this may be achieved: 1) You comply with the rules - which we recommend that you review - or 2) we, the moderators, will ensure that you will no longer be in a position to break them

    The choice is entirely yours.

    For the moderators,

    Hi, I loved your advice and comments on kit catamarans and read that you knew of a cheaper supplier for peel ply. As I am planning to start building a cat later this year could you please let me know. It’s a challenge getting affordable materials in Oz - looking at importing a pallet of S-glass from China...
    Thanks again for your advice. I’ll be building in Sydney, but am often in Brisbane.
    Kind regards
    Brian Franki

    Hi - it is a 1993 - was very nice...but too small for our plans. We sold it last week! We're currently shopping for a 40-44' cat with better equipment. I guess I need to update my profile!
