Terry O'Shea's F-41 launched in Australia
Built by boat builder Grant Butler, with assistance from owner Terry O'Shea, this is another
very high quality boat.
The big day at Coomera, near Brisbane. Boat weight with rig is 6000kg (13,200lbs)
The retractable outboard system worked very well
Daggerboard rudder case at left - boat is floating nice and high
Daggerboard rudders on foredeck and bow pole extension line
Bow pole retracted
Bow pole extended - a 3 : 1 built in tackle makes this very easy to do by hand
Side deck showing daggerboard control lines
The synthetic shrouds with Precourt deadeyes
One unique aspect about interior is the head lighting through an opaque panel in
head ceiling. Worked very well.
Head area is very large and bright with a sit down area at right.
