Searching for ORION 3. 23ft WARATAH twin keel yacht 1975

I'm am trying to find a yacht that my grandfather built in Thurlstane Tasmania between 1972 and '74. Some photos are in my album. ORION 3 was sold in the late 70's and sailed to King island. Originally a 21ft design by DENNIS KNIGHT (RIP) in the late 60's in Gosford N.S.W. It was a WARATAH TWIN BILGE KEEL MASTHEAD SLOOP. If you know of her current location I want to hear from you. I'm now 36 years old, my 'opa' died in '89 and it is my dream to find ORION 3 (as she was named back in the 70's) regardless of her current condition. call (DIRK, in Australia) on 0457 079 242, OR email me So....ten post's later (what a waste) I can give you this info, using photo's depicting the construction, I have uploaded a video to YOUTUBE
