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.
Cameron, I think I mentioned at the time that I thought she had a bit of Laurent Giles and Wanderer about her. Any time I'm in Melbourne I'm most certainly up for a sail.

Now back to the plastic....

Paulo....we talked Sydney earlier on but did you see this ?
