    B class information

    Qb2 you are correct on the construction, ply deck and sides (looks like 3mm), fibreglass bottom and stern. having done a little reading about the QB2’s beginning, the Cunningham’s modified a quest A to be a two handed boat and knowing they built a c class known as Quest (one, two and three) I’m wondering if this is a quest B?

    Nacra National Titles 2019-2020

    Sorry it has been pointed out to me that I posted the wrong dates for this event as it got changed from the proposal, racing is from Monday 30th of December 2019 to Saturday 4th of January 2020 with New Years Day being the lay day. I apologise for any inconvenience, the notice of race is correct, we have strong support for the event with a couple of people coming from England and a couple from Hong Kong, 10 boats from WA, and plenty from between there and Far North Qld. We are anticipating about 40 Nacras competing, rental house accomodation has been nearly booked out but there are a couple of houses that have just come up if you still need accomodation. It’s still a way off from cutoff for sending in the entry forms but I have to order shirts soon so if you want the correct size shirt it will be guaranteed if you put your form in soon otherwise I will be guessing, see you there

    Thanks qb2, I know little about the (qb’s) but from what I’ve read the QB’s are 18ft long and 8ft wide (is this correct?) My cats 20ft long and 10ft wide like a tornado. thanks

    B class information

    This looks like a QB2 which was a Lindsay Cunningham design. He was from Melbourne and there were significant fleets in Vic, SA, NSW and Qld. The QB was designed and built in competition for the catamaran division in Olympic selection but which went ultimately to the Tornado.. The original QBs were terrific cats and good performers, As one seasoned catsaailor told me because of the thin sterns you could slow the beast downwind by dragging the sterns and rear beam .. These were sold as plans which you built at home or in a club ewhich build up fleets. They had, from memory 4-6mm ply sides and decks but the lower sides, ie from keels up about six inches were fibreglass because the ply wouldn't do the compound curve. A 30 foot mast and a big sail area. I bought one of the last ones believed to be in Qld in about 1994 .. it was originally called Bwana Banana and was bright yellow.. By the time i bought it , it needed new decks and sides from rot, it had seven separate colour paint coats on it I restored it as best i could ..and then met the original builder who said i'd done a crap job. There were up to have a dozen at Townsville whewre i bought mine upgrading from the only 14 footer, a Maricat in the local club cat fleet, before sailors went to tornadoes, capricorn a locally built heavy cat, A class and then Taipans when they hit the scee in the 1990's. Qld heat and humidity were not kind to these boats nor is being left out in weather extremes .. Howeverr they are still terrific performers if you find one in good condition. The QB3 was the same boat upgraded i think with only the centreboards moved about a foot back , a little more roach sail area and i can't remember if the mast got taller. cheers Mark Dawson

    Clubs around Brisbane

    Hello. I am new to sailing maricats. Would like to improve my rudder set up on my boat. Wondering if there are any clubs or fellow sailors in the Brisbane area where I could look at their set ups. Cheers

    B class information

    Hi there, I have a ply b class cat that I believe would date back to the mid 60’s, I’m hoping someone out there knows a little of it’s early history, I believe it started life on the mornington peninsular, the sail number is KA32, I think it’s original colour was yellow . Any help would be very much appreciated

  18. Hi Darcy, Do you still have this trailer? If so any chance of some pictures?

    If there is a club near you, have a look at any trap set up, they are all similar, a separate shackle at the hound fitting for the trap wires. give me a call 02 43591729.

  27. Hi, I am selling my 5.2. I have owned it for over 10 years now but it’s not getting used lately. Sail No. 1749. Built circa 1982. The boat is in fairly good condition, it’s complete and everything works Comes on registered trailer (just paid another 12 months QLD rego) with beach rollers, sail box and rigging box. I think $1500 would be a fair price. Boat will need to be picked up and towed away from Springwood 4127 QLD. You can contact me, Howard on 0438 785 630
