You may remember this Ripple which was sea-trialled in raw Duflex! Since then the owner has spent a lot of effort fitting this little boat out. There is storage below the helm seat, hydraulic steering, an anchor locker, bilge pump and even nav lights! The engine is a 15hp Mercury with electric start and tilt! All that's missing is the espresso machine! This would have to be the most elaborate fit-out of the smaller sized Ripple's so far.

Congrats go to the owner who has done a great job on the finish! 

There is a Youtube video clip of the boat underway for anyone interested: click here

Chris Downing has been enjoying the last few months cruising the East Coast since his departure from
Port Stephens in July. His Spirited 380 Tasha was fitted with a brand new set of North sails for the trip.
Chris recounts some highlights from his trip below:
 


 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


"My brother Andrew, brother in-law Chris and myself sailed non-stop from Soldiers Point to the Gold Coast in 53 hrs. I don’t think this is any kind of record but it sounds good.

Then my mother Bev, step father Mike, Andrew and myself motored through the GC Seaway to Manly (zero wind).

Andrew and I sailed from Manly to Rosslyn Bay (Yeppon) where Andrew jumped ship. Then its was just me to the Whitsundays.

I’ve had friends visiting and have Andrew, his wife Elizabeth, son Lachlan and myself to sailing back from the Whitsundays to Rosslyn Bay.

Then its myself again (I’m hoping my father Frank will join me) back to Manly where she will have a marina berth at the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club (MBTBC) Marina.

Had mixture of very light to strong (0-25) SW - SE most of the way. Top speed was 16 kts.

A couple of times we averaged 12 kts over several hours.

Tasha has performed very well (overtook several yachts/cats sailing north) and easy as to sail single handed.." 

Tasha is now up for sale for anyone wanting a beautifully finished example of this design. Please contact us for further details.
