You do not play fair, it took forever to figure this one out, and I may be incorrect, but a wild a$$ed guess ... a Chris White design and was possibly built in the USA (Massachusetts, I think) so that would be the northern hemisphere

Gavin,

Fair ??? I made it so easy ! How many Oceans are there? I will have to make the next one a tad more difficult. Gavin, 10 out of 10 for the designer. Zero for the model :- Atlantic.

Hmm, I thought that Massachusetts was on the Atlantic coast. Will have to check my charts...

It is similar in profile to the Iriquois designs , but I can get no closer than that. (were the iriquois' a U.S. or Pommy (Limey) design ????

Pretty good guess coming from an Aussie ! It is indeed an Iraquois class catamaran - others by the same designer were also named after Native American tribes.

The Iraquois was first built in Brightlingsea .

What was Rod the Designer's surname.
