What an effing ripper. (That's Australian for niiiiiiiice !!) Must go like a rocket (or at least a hot Renault ! hee hee, sorry, couldn't resist). Fitout is most impressive. You've drawn a nice line between racer and cruiser, teak decks a nice touch and the cherry wood interior lightens her up compared to teak or mahogany but still has plenty of character. The smell of the interior when first complete must have been sublime. Love to come for a sail when I next make it over your way. 21 knots eh ? Jaysus wept ! Managed to drag 11 knots out of Raven on the way back to Sydney last week but she ain't ever gunna see much more than that. Love those steering pedestals and wheels, very groovy I must say.
(Work time, I'm afraid, get back to you later.)
