Did you get your HC38?
There is a mention of her on the flemingselfsteer.com website if that helps.
I'm in Perth and am developing a hankering.............

Sorry, Gunny - didn't see your post first time around.

There is a "Starshine" on the AMSA list, but that's for a 32' yacht and not likely to be a HC38 - but that also means two things:

1. It's not likely your boat has travelled outside of Australian waters, so no-one outside of Oz will have heard of her.
2. You won't be able to get the boat registered under it's current name (should you ever want to go cruising offshore).

Good luck with your purchase and make sure you post some pics of her!

EDIT: To anyone looking to buy a substantial cruising yacht in Oz, make sure you look for a Registration Number carved in a cross-beam as part of your initial inspection. IF there's a number there, check it out on the AMSA Web Site and insist on getting the Certificate of Registration when you buy - it will tell you an awful lot about the history of the boat and is the Official "Title" to the boat. If a boat is AMSA Registered, by law, whoever has the Certificate owns the boat.

Smile HC38 "Starshine"

Thanks for the replies...Hartley and Simonoz
I'm in the final stages of the purchase of "Starshine"...Should be mine in about a fortnight...I'm going to leave her in Queensland with a longer term plan of sailing up the east coast and then the "big tack to starboard" and sail the pacific...
She is now an Australian registered vessel and I would think it is "Starshine"
I've tried loading some piccy's but I must be doing something wrong...?

Gunny, I think you need one more post.

Has the owner shown you the Certificate of Registration?? "Starshine" is registered in Sydney..

Smile HC38 Starshine

Have seen the papers...
Australian Registered Vessel (all legitimate)...

Starshine is now based at the Manly Trailer Boat Club.

Took her for sea trials in 20-30 kt winds sailed beautifully, pointed well surprisingly and the aesthetics of the boat well, they are great but you probably know this from your (Dad's??) boat...

Regards,

Gunny

Good stuff.

Now all we need to see are some pics of your boat and to hear about all the projects you plan to undertake to get her looking the way you want..

Gunny, you have a couple of options:

1. You can "attach" them using the paper-clip icon in the formatting window of your post, but the pics will most likely need to be re-sized to 800x600 and smaller than whatever the limit is nowadays. This is probably only useful if you have <5 photos to post.

2. You can upload them to a web-site somewhere and post the link to them using the "Insert Image" icon in the formatting window. There are plenty of free sites to choose from - Picasa, Photobucket, PBase just to name a few - or, if you can't be bothered doing that, you can use your Sailnet Photo Gallery.

Hope this helps.

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
gunny, if she's been flagged (registered, titled, documented) the odds are that there's a paper trail available of previous owners. I'd suggest asking your national authorities about that. A title insurance company might also be able to research the title chain for you, or tell you how to do that. That's all part of their job when titled property/goods is being financed and title insurance required.
