Yes Max this is a great list and has potential to be kept up to date and alive as you moderate it. It might even get longer than the famous Keel Hauled post.

Yes I understand the privacy concerns Max. I also liked your little improvements.

What other stuff could we include under each boat to buid on the date and make it even more interesting?

How about this as an example.

472 - Continental 186kg CB Hydraulic Yellow 1993 Nellie P now Nellie Sandgate QLD

26 - MK 1 64kg CB white 1970 Vela now Wyuna Sunshine Coast QLD

1 - MK 1 64kg CB white 1970 WRECKED Lake Macquarie (fictional entry)

If we get the format right we can then progressively bring the whole fleet up to date and it might help us locate missing boats? A great little project....

We could even add boats that we see on the road or abandoned in a garage and add to the system. The list could be eventually completed with a registration of all boats. We could get the CARD system from the Roses uploaded in the right format which would be a good basis for the system.

We may even add the NZ boats and send out a scout to find them.
Could be fun.

BTW, not sure when the first cast iron keel was installed but as far as I know,, all mk3's came out of construction with them.
I know that some of the mk2's were built with them too & confirm that, that is at least the case with C18/441 & 442.
There are other Nat. Title boats here on the list as well as those already noted. (Both Storm & Ivana are recent notables)
The famous, very fast red boat was largely made famous by its skipper/crew (Jim Wearing & off spring) who knew what they were doing & how to sail well.
Interestingly, the 200 boat was I understand, constructed differently to the normal 18 & built very precisely however, she wasn't unbeatable by the normal build as proven by Buhawi & some others on a number of occasions !
Jim was always a fierce competitor on the water & I for one largely enjoyed immensely his competition.

Some more interesting news & confirmation !
Had reason to visit & speak with today the actual boat builder himself from about C18/100 on.
I was collecting a slide hatch for the reno of 57 but, whilst there got yacking as you do!
At the time he was completing small repairs to the rear of an 18 which had been hit by a cat.
Anyway, Seaton confirms the boat Margo C18/415 is in fact the last Mk1. produced.
He also told me that he himself used to race/cruise in the late 70's early 80's & that he'd owned 3 x 18's in total himself.
He must have been a decent sailor I thought as he mentioned that he'd won a heat or won the then NSW Titles of the day.
He didn't get around to confirming that. Next visit !
One of his boats was in fact C18/420 a mk2 which he himself built in the larger case to accept the larger cast iron keel.
He believes that they were all the bigger case/cast job from that boat on !

We used to have 196. When we bought it, it was called Miss Amanda. It was a condition of sale that we change the name. We called it Miss Mand, as we had not sailed before and it was cheap to remove two "a"s. This was before it was called Billabong.
Is there a 22 register as well?

G’day
Excellent work on the database fantastic idea.
C18/408 resides in Wagga now, I was looking for its original name “Papageno” .
A quick Google/Youtube search and it was named after an opera character in white tights with a duck strapped to his head. Sometimes you have to wonder how they evolve into boat names.

Not really Paul but given 457 is billed as the first Continental out of 481 boats and there were 3 kit boats (so probably not Continentals) then I'd say 22 boats give or take. Pam would know.

Like the Idea of an historic entry of names as Don suggested. Maybe then progress to Pauls idea with more info like deck color for cross referencing.
At least Dons idea is not too much of an imposition Max. Original name first thru to current name
So, after going thru some old records I can add "as launched" names for a few boats
3 Bali Hai
7 Jirgen Ruwa
34 Osprey
35 Tarka
66 Gloria 111
68 Iolaire
100 Obalix
Am pretty sure that 94 was Ross Fehlbergs 1st boat the original Flamingo - 57 had another name at launch which escapes me at present but I did race on it so it will eventually remember.
