This doesn't look like Pittwater Tonto! With apologies to the Wizard of Oz.

No it couldn't be more different really.
Funny thing considering this is the only C18 in tas, I had a couple of people comment that they hadn't seen a Careel here but that they are lovely boats! It seems that despite there not being any here they still know and like them..

The Derwent River and the Dentrecasteaux (sp?) Channel are pretty high on my list of places I'd like to spend time sailing in. You're a lucky fella delux.

I won't argue! There are so many amazing places to explore down here. You could spend years just exploring the channel area..

Hi delux,

I love the photo's, please keep them coming. I may get time this weekend to put some photo's up of our Easter at Wyangala Dam, you will wish that you diverted there before crossing the Strait.

Anyway, what I wanted to say was that I was told by one of the participants at the Easter Cruise on Wyangala that a mate of his in Queensland is moving to Launceston and taking his C18 with him.

Back in 1985 there were two C22's in Tasmania, one in Launceston and the other in Devonport. I seem to recall a C18 in the 1990's from our membership list around the Hobart area but can't say for sure.

I know of a C22 up north (the Deviot area) but according to the register there are no C18s. Another one down here would be great though! Keep me informed.. :lol:

Jes, shes looks great, the boat that is. :lol: :lol: .I see you have replaced the plastic cleats at the stern for chrommies mmm metal weighs more than plastic :lol: :lol: :lol: . and you got rid of those stupid clam cleats, i hated them but never replaced them. Whats going on with the cunningham? it should go through the first eyelet in the sail then back down to the saddle. unless you have changed it. Best looking careel around i reckon, but i am biased.
Keep us posted.

You must have long arms, at least two metres, to replace the plastic stern anchor cleats with steel ones. Doesn't matter how much weight you add, it will still be the fastest Careel 18 in Tassie .. until Clockwork gets there anyway!

Yep the cleats do weigh more but I replaced the old heavy winch handles with new lightweight Ronstan ones. I actually weighed them all and I've come out lighter overall!!!

And yes I was in a hurry and tied the cunningham in the wrong place. Rookie error! :roll:

Oh and I replaced the tiller extension with a new Ronstan extendable jobbie.

More weight savings!! :wink:
