Originally named Fair Curve this is the boat John Sawyer designed and built for himself based on his Coastal Classic winner TL Systems. TL was an open bridge decker and the current owners wife said she would only come out sailing with him if he built a full bridge-deck with galley/ dinette up.
Constructed of West System on strip plank cedar. Light but very strong. Ply has been used for bulk-heads,  and the additions to the bows and the stern modifications were carried out by Richard Edlin.

The current owner brought her in 2012 and made the changes that would suit there needs.
At the end of 2013 we took her to Richard Edlin Boatbuilders in Matakohe where she underwent an extensive (and expensive!} three month rebuild and refit relaunching in January 2014.

The rebuild included fitting new plumb bows and rebuilding the sterns and cockpit to create easy boarding steps and better sitting areas. The 9.9hp Yamaha outboards were replaced with 30hp Lombardini sail-drives and a twin wheel Hydrive hydraulic steering was installed.

The hull accommodation was reconfigured to create two huge quarter-berths and a new bathroom was built forward in the port hull with a huge wet locker forward in the starboard hull. She was completely re-plumbed and rewired and all upholstery and carpet was replaced. Also added were a new electric toilet, new stereo, new hot water cylinder (run off the port motor), new electric fridge, new Maxwell anchor winch and an all chain {10mm) rode was fitted.
Since then upgrades have continued.

Last winter she had decks and cockpit painted and was given new antifoul and prop-speed. New solar panels and regulator were fitted, the sail-drives were removed, stripped and serviced and all LPG
Lines were replaced (compliance certificate issued). The start batteries were also replaced.
