Hans Christian 38

It's all my fault.. I tried to stop him, but my Dad has just gone and bought a Hans Christian!

This one.

My folks haven't had a boat in years.. but I guess they saw mine and decided to get something themselves. Perhaps I made all the work I've done look too easy?!? Never mind..

Apparently, this one was bought in the San Fransisco and sailed out here via Tahiti. Except for the varnish, it's in pretty good nick. After the rigging is renewed, the next step is delivery from Melbourne to Brisbane to SimonV's neck of the woods there on the south side in time for the inaugural Family Cruise at Christmas...

It needs a decent name. It's current name is apparently Spanish for "Stork"!!

If there's interest, perhaps I'll post a review a bit later in the year.
