Two More F-22 Launchings!

In Australia

Lloyd and Jabin Crisp's F-22R (cuddy cabin version) in the water, after a 12 month
building time, and looking very light.

Now with mast up, and Lloyd has just reported reaching over 15 knots of boat speed in 10 - 15 knots
of wind on their second sail, while on a tight reach. Now just waiting for some sailing photos.
Plenty of room in that cockpit!

In The Philippines

Meanwhile in Manila, Marcus Tomblin's F-22R "Kermit, the little green
racing machine", is ready to go!

How about that finish?

..and the other side!

Raising the mast - went very well, and even though a tall 'R' mast it seemed effortless


A great looking boat - green can be a controversial colour for a boat, but it grows on one!

Plenty of deck space

and an idyllic tropical setting on Lake Taal, the Philippines. Unfortunately sails were not
ready when I had to leave, but Marcus has now been sailing with main and temporary jib,
and writes: "Hit 14 knots today with a nasty old jib and everything pretty poorly adjusted
in about the same wind.. she sails very well, everyone happy!
