    Those pics were all shot in the "Boat orchard" at Warriwood in NSW.
    All covered by "Macmansions" now.:(

    Sorry old friend but the photos were taken in Bill Salisbury's orchard off Castle Hill Road, West Pennant Hills. I should know, I took them with a Minolta SRT 101 using Kodak Ectachrome film. I also helped build it and sailed on its maiden trip where I watched the sumlog needle bouncing off the stop (36knot limited) as we surfed back into Sydney harbour with a 35 knot NE wind with the main reefed down as far as it would go.

    Trimariner, did you ever see the Kraken 25 Jabberwock? Lock reckoned she improved on a lot of aspects of his original Kraken 25 design I cant find out much about the boat and am curious as to what was different. I've seen a few photos of the boat but nothing detailed enough to show any differences.

    Sorry John. I bow to your superior knowledge. :confused:
    It was a different Crowther that I have a pic of in the "Boat Farm" at Warriwood. But still covered by urban sprawl now.
