G'day there. My name's james val jackson, 72, male, live in Kuranda, inland from Cairns, Far North Queensland, been a yacht builder/ repairer/ sailor/ cruiser & racer for over 40 years (don't want to be that old). I saw Mai Tai - in Darwin last year - up on the hard - before being 'fixed-up'. Can't remember if it was 'Pumkin-eater' or not but you could contact the MANTA yard in Darwin directly (I'll get you the contact there - if you wish) or I can get in touch with some of the sailors that are also in that yard, again if you wish? Word of advice; be very careful about all & or any - older - rebuilt multihulls, Please - for your sake. PM me if you wish to talk. Again - same be same - about the Crowther 'Shockwave' in Carnarvon - could chase that down - as I've got some contacts in the multihull scene here in OZ. I used to sail with & against Locki & also raced many of his boats so the association goes back a long while. Ciao for now, james
Good luck - but be very VERY cautious - Please. Shop with great care. Ciao, james on 07-40-93-9900 - Australia - if you wish.
