F-9AX Launched in Australia

Paul Steinhardt took over Trevor Wuoti 's F-9AX to finish after Trevor could not continue, and now has it launched. Paul had also previously built an F-25A and writes

Hi Ian,

Trevor Wuoti had done a wonderful job and I have now completed the project, which has turned out quite well I think. Had the boat OMR measured on the weekend, and the all up sailing weight excluding water and fuel was 1865 kg (4100lbs).

It sails like a dream. The only changes that I have made were to extend the rudder by 100mm (4") and having a wider traveler towards the rear of the cockpit. Once again thanks  for a great design.

I really enjoyed my F-25 “Smooth Operator” but  this F-9R is a rocket.

Regards

Paul
