Z-127 - 11.10.2011 by Jens Busch
The name under the ownership of Marcel Capecchi should be "Guglielmo", according to entry lists from the Europeans in 1980 and 1981, and according to my memory!
5.5 G-21 became 5.5 Z-127 - 16.02.2010 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
With the presence of both rating certificates (G-21 + Z-127) and additional info from Thomas Treib, it is now confirmed that G-21 became Z-127 at the end of the seventies.

The earlier note in this respect:
28.08.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Listed in the Swiss register as an Egger-built boat, Thomas Treib informed that Z-127 is one of the Chance/Sommerfeld boats:
Z-114, Z-116, Z-117, Z-118, Z-121, Z-122, G-21, Z-127.
The form is told to have been built in Switzerland, carried to Northern Germany, the boats delivered and finally the form returned.
Searching for "Wallaby" - 03.02.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The German 5.5m Association is searching for "Wallaby", which had been located on Lake Constance and which has possibly been sold to a neighbouring country in the early 1980's.
Any hint to its whereabouts, please pass to
