    Ron,i grew up across the street from Spencers yard when she was built,an awesome boat. There was a story done on her when she was first launched in Sea Spray magazine, july 1966 issue,someone posted it online a couple of years ago,unfortunatly i cant remember where.

    she was not launched Ragtime but as Infidel if I member rightly, small sis to Buccaneer, which won Syd/Hobart in 70,s, sometimes I crewed on her
    buc was sold into Au, buggest ply sloop in world, holed by whale crossing Au bight We had lots fun with Tom Clarke the owner
    from our house which was the only one ON the beach in Mairangi Bay at the time, we used watch her and Fidelis joust it out in the Gulf
    Whispers of Wellington was also very successful Fidelis was not a Spencer
