F-9AX Launched in Australia
Paul Steinhardt took over Trevor Wuoti 's F-9AX to finish after Trevor could not continue, and now has it launched. Paul had also previously built an F-25A and writes
Trevor Wuoti had done a wonderful job and I have now completed the project, which has turned out quite well I think. Had the boat OMR measured on the weekend, and the all up sailing weight excluding water and fuel was 1865 kg (4100lbs).
It sails like a dream. The only changes that I have made were to extend the rudder by 100mm (4") and having a wider traveler towards the rear of the cockpit. Once again thanks for a great design.
I really enjoyed my F-25 “Smooth Operator” but this F-9R is a rocket.
