    Sadly Matchless is no more she went ashore in a gale and was smashed to pieces. I have her mast and sails hanging up in my workshop and am hoping to use them on my F40/slightly more comfortable F40 Kurt Hughes trimaran project now, so something lives on of the old girl.

    Hi Phil, welcome to the forum . . :)

    Previously you needed to rack up 5 posts to enable the PM system, this could be still the case, in the forum buttons it's now called ‘‘Conversation’’.

    I'll ask the Moderator to answer this one.

    Good luck

    That's correct. The Conversation option will appear the day after your post count reaches a minimum number of posts on the main forums. Then when you click on a member's name you'll see an option to "Start a Conversation."

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hey Sabahcat! I bought Excess last year and sailed her to Darwin. Do you have any other info on the boat?

    You could look Terry Travers up, he always seemed to be helpful and knowledgeable. I think he's on facebook. I'd love to hear an account of your Hobart to Darwin trip. Cheers.

    Darn good question, just asked them on Facebook. The platform was looking amazing.

    This was Peter Johnstone's (the boats owner) reply:

    She’s assembled here in Charleston. Most new parts are here. Will complete her as time permits.

    So I'm glad to report we should see this beautiful racing trimaran back on the water some time in the not too distant future.
