Interesting you should post that, Andrew. I've been reading Hiscock's books so much I bought the closest thing I could find!!



Even though designed here in Oz three years before Wanderer III, the only significant difference between their boat and mine is that they had a slightly longer cabin, no doghouse and a tiny cockpit. Both boats drew on the LG Virtue extensively and the hull dimensions and lines are almost identical.

If this was your dream, we really MUST go for a sail sometime!! ..and I should stop reading sailing books.
