The three 4.2m Ripple Tenders were launched recently and look great, early reports are good with good performance and handling.
We are waiting for more feedback and detailed performance figures which we will post when available. 

All three tenders were built from a DuFlex Balsa kit and are set up with an offset steering console to Starboard. The owners specifically chose DuFlex as the building material for its lightweight and strong characterisitics. One of these boats will be stored on the rood of the mothership. 

The owners have done a beautiful job of finishing with all three boats fitted and finished identically.

Spirited 230 Central Coast NSWSteve Middendorf is making good progress on his Spirited 230 project and is hoping to launch in the next 6 weeks.  

Close to painting stage with all structural work completed and faired, this boat is set up for relative extended cruising with most amenities and cruising features such as good solar charging, large top loading built in fridge and long range fuel tanks.

Steve has even gone to the extent of building his own composite bow rails which look great!

Spirited 230

Powered by 2x 70hp 4 stroke outboard engines and we look forward to the performance report. Steve's workmanship is meticulous with good attention to detail. We expect the painted finish will present accordingly. 

We will keep you up to date close to launching.

We recently dropped in to see Chris Downing who is building his Spirited 380. This project is progressing well and Chris is hoping to have her launched early in the new year of 2014.

We were commissioned to do a customised interior layout for Chris which comprised of a larger L-shaped seating area in the saloon and a separate vanity area forward of the aft saloon bulkhead. This area works well and provides good storage on the outboard side of the vanity.

The new layout also included a workshop area in the starboard aft cabin which has a fold down section to create a double bunk. This area is large enough for him to store his bicycle. Chris plans to live aboard permanently and is looking forward to his new lifestyle.

We will let you know of how Chris progresses closer to his launch date.

A recent Spirited 480 order has been produced with a special client request of 100kg density AIREX Foam hulls. His hull components utilise the foam below the waterline with the remainder of the structure in end-grain balsa. As per our process, the hull and deck components have been resin infused to maximum strength.
The client has been enthusiastically working on his furniture which was custom designed to the clients requirements along with some other areas. Some of these changes include an extended roof over the cockpit , a custom all weather raised steering station set to starboard and a custom daybed incorporated into the cockpit.
We can report that following our recent visit, there is a high level of attention to detail in the work done todate. In the coming weeks assembly will take effect, we'll keep you posted on it's progress.

3.2m Ripple

G'day Craig,
Had BSF out on Lake Barrington on Saturday - 1st proper day trip - brilliant success. The for'd locker was so handy ! Blew up later on in afternoon, but I was determined to make it to the northern end of the lake so kept going. I reckon it was blowing 20 knots so a bit of a chop but she handled it fine. Reason I built the boat was for day trips and it was a brilliant success. Teddy the dog had a ball ! He got gamer as the day went on - climbing on to the foredeck even when arked up - how he didn't end up in the drink I don't know ! LOL 
Catch you later & cheers, Brian
