Yeah, I got an email notification about that one earlier today and had a quick look. It seemed odd. Looking at it again now, I'd say no, it's not a C18. There doesn't seem to be any sheet winches or they're not in the right position. The keel raising mechanism looks weird. The foresail in the photo of it under sail doesn't look right either (but it is carrying a reefed main so maybe that's why the jib looks wrong).

But I could easily be wrong. I often am! :oops: :D

Looks like one of the Duncaston I think they were called, the prelude to the careel - mosthad timber comings in the cockpit, thisone seems to be newer with fiberglass comings. Explains the similarities to the careel and yet looking different. That's my guess anyway

Spotted gum is a great hardwood. It makes a good TnG floor ;-)
