Some history #2

This is the story of Robert and Ian’s crossing to Tasmainia in Charlie Fisher, his 23′ NIS. Thanks to Robert and Australian Amateur Boat Builder Magazine for this rollicking tale.

    Thanks for sharing the story. I learned a little about the reasons men die at sea!

      There’s a great think piece Robert has been working on related to fixed keels and how they can trip up a boat in big waves. I’m sure he written about it in depth somewhere, but this is the genesis of it.
