Hi. I have just bought a daydream in NZ and in the process of renovating. I am looking for anyone that has a daydream boat in Auckland or Whangarei that I could come and have a look at for ideas.

r.austin G'day Chris, If you're still on this forum

I sail a Daydream out of Melbourne, and have plans.

What do you want to know?

No you can't have my plans :P

You could try all the old shipyards in Melbourne and see if anyone still has plans. Mine was built somewhere in Sandringham in the 60s.

If you're worried about carry-on luggage, the obvious solution is to sail it home

edmondschris Hi I have just come across the Daydream design and am interested in any plans or sketches etc that are available. There something infinitely charming about the boat I have seen here in North Haven, which is for sale, but I am only in Australia for a short while and don't think I can get the real boat in as hand luggage. I would be nterested in exploring the possibility of a UK build but would like to know more about the design before going further.

Many thanks

Chris.

hjvandermoaler hi ,i have just joined and i have many fond memories of Peter Fletcher as a friend and as a boss.as for tyhe daydream this delightful little yacht was designed by Ken Watts last known living on the NSW central coast.

Foxsj Let me know if you want some photos or more info

Hi there - I have just bought the rough one linked above and have plans to renovate it and make it good again. She's in need of some decent TLC so am planning to put her in a workshop for 6 months to fix the rotten bits and repaint. The survey I had done said that although there's work required, because it was professionally built very well in the first place it's still a sound boat. Cant wait to get her looking like new.

I'd be very intersted in photos and info on the daydreams - I have found a chap who recalls them being raced on Pittwater in the 60s as 'almost' a one design class! Would be great to find a photo of them all racing...

Windsong1950
Given the apt title I wont start a new thread

I recently started restoring a 28 ft daydream built 1960. Its was fitted with a barometer which I'm told was bestowed to it by its shipwright engraved "Presented to "Windsong" Herb Tonkin 1960". I beleive he was a West Australian boat builder. Would anyone know of this boats history or be able to steer me in the right direction

Daydream

well I do believe I was named after a beautiful yacht,
that, or a Robert Louis Stevenson novel - depends which parent you asked!

Seriously if you ever come across the original Daydream please let me know. If I wasn't on the other side of the planet I'd buy the rough one and do her up.....I wonder how much it'd cost to get her here?? I'll crank up my scanner and rummage in the loft over the weekend and post some photos of the original DD. Whereabouts in Sydney are you?
