Re: Fast Forward?

Not us... But that's just what I need.. The C36MKII is one of my wife's favourite boats and we wouldn't need to change the name!!

This is us... maybe we'll see you out there if you venture a bit north this summer!

Re: Fast Forward?

Ron, I always get a kick seeing your boat in BC waters. There are a dozen Fast 345's in my mooring field and I cross them on the water all the time. They are still highly regarded here for cruising and casual racing. It's nice to see one that managed to find its way from Brazil to Canada!

Re: Fast Forward?

We knew it wasn't you, my wife noticed it moored at Tsheum Haven the other day. We found it odd to have the same rather unusual name.

Alas.... just like naming your kids, you think you're being original; and the next thing you know there are 4 kids in his/her class with the same name...

I know of at least 3 other Fast Forwards that we've seen around since....

The story told to me by the PO was that one of the principals at Fast Yachts in Brazil owed someone in the U.S. some money, and paid it off with 5 or 6 boats that were shipped north. I know of one other in San Fran, and another on the East Coast. AFAIK we're the only Canadian example now, though we bought in WA state. I think ours (Hull #41) is one of the last fractional rigged versions.
