Rolf,

SALTY looks like an 18'6 Ace Craft

The other boat I could not venture a guess

But that is a macadamia orchird for sure

What's happening?

I finally have an answer for you..

The original boat was a piece of sh!t! The owner brought it to SA for a complete rebuild. Ideally he would have been better off ordering a new boat but didn't want to pay import taxes. So he will have what is essentially a brand new boat that he will return with as his old boat.

The deck however is something Z-Craft has been working on. They want to build a 30' cat. and that cabin is a prototype.

Why do you guys think the sharks board wount sell any boats from those ace - craft moulds ? Surely it cant do any harm if other people also owns the same boats, and seeing they are also complaining about tight bugets etc maybe they can make a few bucks.....?

Do you guys think there will be a demand for them ?

If there really are ace - crafts available you will have to be quick if you want one - Thika will most likely order the whole first years production !!!!

Hi Thika - Salty is actually a 7,2m hull - thats why I wanted to know if it could be a 660 hull, but they dont really look the same or what you think ?

What did you mean about the orchird - we dont dont know anything anout nuts in the western tvl , so dont know if it was good or bad.
