Wow... really excited to see one of the best boats I've owned making waves here in the UK. (Not that particular boat mind you, but the class)
I raced one for 3-4 seasons as I moved from the NZ Junior classes and loved every minute of it. Loved the 3.7 so much I bought a second one as my first 'budget' purchase (I was only in my mid-teens at that point) seemed a bit slow.
My second one involved a six hour drive north to Auckland to look it over, shell over the cash, and then a 3.5 hour drive straight down to Rotorua where there was a strong 3.7 presence at the North Island 3.7 Championships. All this in on one day, in a Mark 2 Escort with boat on tow, no radiator core, and several bottles of water to keep it from over-heating.
Those were the days...... lol

Am I right in assuming the 3.7 will based at Burghfield? If so I will have to come and see it for sentimental value next time I'm visiting the Pa-in-law who's a member there.

Enjoy the boat!!!

Please do come done to BSC, I'd love to chat about the 3.7. Get your take on moving things along in the UK. I take it you have seen my blog on the subject?

So, are you bringing 384 back home for Worlds next year?

We can call them that now that we have a boat on the opposite side of the planet.

The ISAF are rather anal about such things - maybe the planetary championships?

Let's wait until we have enough to fill a container, I can't afford to keep a shipping company in business all by my self!

Or perhaps the NZ fleet could come over and sell their boats to save on return transport - help establish a UK fleet in a single hit!

I wouldn't dare let you have triple three...  There would be a queue of people wanting to kill me if I did that!

Could all the Kiwi's bring a container of boats over here, sell them, buy campers and drive home? Is that not what they do?

By the way. For sale. Nice Rondar Contender.
