No confusion - 03.06.2009 by Matti Muoniovaara
There is no confusion with this boat. The boat was built 1965 by William H. Barnett Pty Ltd at McMahon's Point in Sydney to Norman George Booth. The first Southern Cross was destroyed in Sydney Harbor.
Maybe Booth took sails from that boat (KA-9) and add #1 after #9 and it's KA-91, simple. (Symonette uses the same system, he takes a sail from BA-1, then adds #1 and that's Pop's John B BA-11!) Then Booth went to Naples World Championship and won the silver medal there.
Confusion and story-mix with AUS-043 ? - 14.05.2009 by Site Administrator
Not sure to be an original construction. The names of "Nangarina" and Tim Herbert are already refering to AUS-043., isn't-it any confusion or story-mix with ?
