    Default Waratah Design Information

    Hello,
    I have a lovely little Waratah yacht -22 ft bilge keel, and I am keen to know everything about the design and of any other happy owners! Does anyone know anything about this (I believe Australian) design?
    Thanks
    David

    I have never heard of this design David.

    Some pictures, or a link to some photos or an internet site would help.

    David you need to use a picture hosting service - eg photobucket
    Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem

    I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"

    The only references I can find to a Waratah yacht are those derived from Yachting Australia's list of handicaps for trailer sailers. My guess would be that it's a Sydney built boat, probably from Port Hacking or Botany Bay. How old is your boat? Rick

    Thanks Bigfella, I will use a hosting service.

    As far as I know it was built in the late 80's (Ply/Epoxy). The design may have been for a 20 footer but most (including mine) have a lazarette added. I will try these pics from a picasa album. No luck! The following url's can clicked or pasted into explorer - it's the best I can do for now! Thanks for your patience.

    Looks good. For the pics from that website you just need to right click on the pic, copy the pic properties and paste them in the yellow mountains (piccies) box above the reply area.

    Looks like a great little boat for Moreton Bay.

    I hope you have a lot of fun with her.
