    Actually it might be Wongdoolie. It was on the market awhile ago I'll see if I saved any pictures.

    Cheers cavalier mk2
    Really appreciate that. As this picks up momentum I would happily share any treasure that may be available for information/help. I'm not doing this for money but for the love of it and to capture and honour this amazing maritime history. I really appreciate any corrections and guidance, and thank you for contributions.
    Love peace and respect

    Wow! these designs from the 60's have a transcendent era spanning, groovy factor built in I never thought about. They can help with harmonic convergence while we work on ama divergence....Did you say flashback or flashflood? It must be a contact high.....make sure of good workspace ventilation....Heard about the flooding down there, seems like OZ is trying to mix fire And water, just don't boil....

    Cheers, Cav

    No beer

    Hello Cav

    As it seems I was wrong on both counts I went to the shed and got some old articles out. Some are photocopies from old magazines I did over 20 years ago but still legible if you look closely. Good history.

    cheers

    Phil

    Here is a question for you Cav. Why do we never see the plans for the Vagabond Mk2 advertised? Renegade was built and she is a Mk 2. Maybe she was built by the factory.

    I have more from an old mag but will scan it so it comes out better. Give me a few days.

    cheers

    Phil

    Phil, you are a gentleman and a scholar. These posts are a great find, I suppose this means there won't be any beer.....

    The Vagabond MK2 plans were advertised on the back of AYRS issues by Trimaran Services. Paddy sent me a faded brochure of the line up I've posted some things from but I'll post the whole thing.

    Cheers Cav.

    Here is the Nicol brochure. The article by Hedley you posted Phil shows what a great champion he was for multihulls. Is there any way we can get you to take the old copies to a copier and hit the dark button? Beers on me for that one.....

    Cheers Phil, You can have a sail anytime you're in the PNW . You'll have to wait a bit if you want the sail in OZ! Right now we're waiting for the temperatures to get back in the epoxy zone to finish up the interior. The off season hasn't been too bad for sailing though if you don't mind rain.
