There was an OI41 in the marina next to ours last year. (Thats Balmain NSW) Very similar but then OIs all tend to look much the same.

One could be cruel and suggest that given she was built in '79 it would have probably taken her this long to get to OZ but I am thinking 'people in glasshouses' so I might just keep mum.

Mipcar...Cruising Helmsman has run a couple of articles on external mainsail furlers in the last year or so. It seems that their great advantage is that they are so much easier to get out when they feck up and you don't need a new mast. I'm with Valiente though, don't like in mast furlers if only cos you lose too much sail area.

Ref the fuel/water cans.....OIs were pretty much built for the bare boat charter market weren't they ? Are they are bit light on for tankage ?
