Hi Dirk,

I really wish you good luck on your quest to find your grand-father's boat. I am sure he watches you from sailor's heaven and gets a chuckle out of all this ! Hope you won't get spammed leaving your phone numbers/email online.

Come on guys there must be someone who can help ?

PS: Have you had a look at

Waratah Design Information

on the wooden boat forum.

You might want to try to contact some owners on there directly. They are bound to know others who have similar boats.

Where there is a will, there is a way. Enjoyed your video, hope you find your boat. My Dad built several sailboats, including an International Star Design. It was a beautiful piece of wooden art work. Best of luck.

Thankyou for replying folks, I really appreciate it. I have looked at the wooden boat forum as my ma' found a thread regarding waratah designs, although that thread was a couple of years old and the guy got the answers he wanted. I have recently emailed a tourist operator/local on King island and she offered to ask around. Her dad who has just sailed to the island would be interested in my quest also i'm told. I'm not fussed about bot's and scammers as my email junk folder get's that type of crap regularly anyhow. I'm confident I'll find her one day, that'll make an epic story for youtube. I'd love to find, photograph and perhaps sail on her. I still have the original plans that my opa used to build her so maybe I'll make my own one day (finance pending). So thanks again guys and feel free to spread the word.
