So I bought 138.......

Postby Scott » Sat Aug 01, 2015 1:41 pm

Hi all,
This is my first ever post on any forum!

Today I picked up my C18 from Bywong. I have seen this boat mentioned in other posts and I can now confirm she is boat 138. The register shows her to be originally named "Savid" , it's quite obvious she was originally orange in colour although she is now white with two green stripes.

I have started to clean her with the Gerni and she is in excellent condition underneath all the dirt and mold. Pictures to follow (when I work out how to post them).

Just wanted to know if anyone out there knows of her history? I have been told that she arrived in Bywong from Nowra. I will be sailing her or at least attempting to sail her at Fitzroy Falls reservoir with the Southern Highlands Sailing Club so she has moved back to her old neighbourhood! Any info would be greatly appreciated, love this forum and have all ready fallen for my new boat.

Thanks heaps, Scott

So here's the first pic of 138. Lots of cleaning today.

I'm new to sailing so I'm hoping she will be a good platform for me to learn. Can't believe she is 41 years old!

Good onya Scott, it's an exciting feeling, pleased for you.
So it was you who bought Shirl's boat.
Sounds like you've got yourself a nice little project.
Call Dave Rose for some extra history 02 99744701. He'll have early at least.
Love Fitzroy Falls & the SHSC indeed that district. Used to sail there back in the early to mid 80's.
You obviously live in the Berrima Dist yourself or close.
Do you know the other C18 owner from SHSC /Bowral, Steve I think ?

Hi Don,

I think the other Careel at the club is a 22' ,I haven't met the owner yet but I'm sure I will be pestering him with questions as soon as the new season kicks off.

Did you have a look at Shirley's boat yourself Don?

There may be a couple of Careels at Fitzroy then Scott.
The one I'm thinking of is definitely an 18.
No, I didn't look at it but was interested as to what No. the boat was. I really got to much on my plate now with revamping/restoring another mk1 at present.
Don't get enough time to use our own mk3 lately !
Couple of fella's from Canberra appeared quite keen on it though from website talk.

Good on you for giving it a new home. I went and had a look at that one a couple of weeks ago. Looks like it had good bones and with some TLC would come up beautiful. But I don't have the time/patience/motivation for that right now. Did you tow it home or get a tilt tray? I was dubious of the trailer, especially wheels, tyres, hubs...

Anyway, congrats on a new toy. Hope it gives you much pleasure.

My search for a ts continues....

Cheers, martin.
