Another F-41 Nearing Launching In Australia

Ric Burnup and Aideen Henry have almost finished their F-41 HARD YAKKA with launching scheduled to be sometime this month. They then hope to leave Perth around mid-end of July to head to the East coast and catch up with all the other F-41 builders on the east coast.

Ric and Aideen write;

Construction is of foam sandwich, Kevlar inside skin and 1200gm glass outside. Interior is going to be very simple with very little timber trim which saves upkeep. Everything will be easily maintained. All bedrooms will be wall to ceiling hull liner. Only the bathroom and saloon will be painted. There are two queen size and two double cabins. The two queen size have toilet/shower en suite. We have taken the option of the galley up as we feel its more social and easier to cook when on the go if your not stuck down in the hulls. The propulsion is primarily by wind having a 16.5 meter rotating wing mast and we will be using a fat head main, working jib, screacher and asymmetrical. Engines will be 2 x 27hp Yanmar's. It will carry approx 500 litres of diesel and 600 litres of water.
