RL24189 un-named at presentPhillip HawesWynnum, QLD, AustraliaI have just bought her (27/6/04). The boat was originally named Phoenix and then subsequently Lisa Marie. She is presently un-named. She was sailed in Western Australia for a while before returning to Queensland. Used for racing in Gladstone. Will now be refitted for cruising around SE QLD. Looking forward to many days of pottering around with paint, timber and resin. And even more days of lazy sailing. Edit

RL24231SpliceAdrian CassarOrmond, Vic, Australia After about 10 years of kicking about in dinghys (125's), we as a family decided to step up. After two weeks of sniffing around we found the right boat for us and bought the boat from Ken Griffiths on 23 May 2004, an RL24MK3 converted from swing to drop. Family and I can't wait to test it out and get to know her. At the inaugural launch, we will be renaming her from Splice to "Nelsons Victory". We couldn't change the name from 'Slice' as everyone we bump into seems to know of the boat and its history. So Splice it remained. After a year and a half we are finally getting to know how it all works. Will attempt the Nationals for first time this year (Jan 2006) - if I can motivate the crew). Sadly the day had come to sell Splice December 2007 after 3 1/2 years. A family from SA bought her. This is not the end of RL's for the Cassar Family as we move into the Liaison chapter, another RL24 MKIV just a bit newer, minimum weight and very fast. Our next chapter is the purchase of Benchmark RL28 from Goolwa in SA April 2008. This boat is for the cruising only stuff, we will keep Liaison RL24 for a while and race her only. Edit

RL24332AnitraPeta DavisAUGUSTA, WA, AustraliaWe bought our Anitra in 1989 and have had nothing but wonderful holidays and experiences with her. We are now off to Perth with work so looking for a 'loving' owner. Peta bought the boat in late 2007 and after changing the keel winch to electric has raced with the Augusta Yacht Club with 3 other RL 24's plus mixed fleet,since then with experienced skipper Ray Wakelin. 2007-8 missed club champion on count back. 2008-9, only beaten 4 times in 17 starts. Great boat, looks good, sails beautifully. Edit
RL24267Pisces GemMike & Robyn ZikanTownsville, Qld, Australia We are first time RLers in fact almost first time sailors. We purchased our RL24 from a local here in Townsville when it was named Accordance. This is a modified RL with fixed keel and a raised cabin. I am not sure of the Mark but suspect it could be III. We have only recently taken over the boat but have had the hull cleaned, anti-fouled and repainted. And we re-christened her to more represent her new owners and hopefully new lease on life. We are anticipating some great sailing around these northern waters and a labour of love in restoration. Edit
RL24Merci Bon DieuSteve FergusonDover, FL, USA I have a RL24 in need of gelcoating after alot of sun and salt here in Florida. It's a swing keel with some play in it but no leak. I would really like a picture of a lift since I hate to crank. Edit

RL24No #BoondoggleChris AshbyE. Fairfield, VT, United States Just bought the boat, she wasn't named and we haven't deceided yet. Bit of a basket case. I think it's one of the US made ones. Hull number RLT11303M81J. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I also need to find a foward hatch as it is missing, any help would be greatly appreciated. Finally she has gone in the water. Two years of labor fixing her up. We had to repair the swing keel trunk edges and strip her down to bare fiberglass. Repainted the whole boat, hull and topsides. Fixed the rudder, closed in the front hatch, recaulked the windows (still leak a little) stripped the interior of the bad carpet job. So she is a whole new boat just about, on the outside anyway. She has spent time on Lake Champlain, Vermont. She handles very nicely, very stable boat. This summers projects include rewiring her lights and fixing up the interior. Edit

RL24428Libearty Bell------previously SwagmanJohn HaworthNorth Nowra, NSW, Australia First trailer yacht purchased 7/11/03.Looking forward to enjoying my retirement present. Watch this space.Having rebulit trailer,installed new electronics,added a new stern rail,updated all safetygear,enhanced standing rigging she is now ready to launch with the greatest of confidence I cannot wait. My very first venture out to Jervis Bay was a great success, not only did the boat sail beyond expectations the wind was gentle and steady, anyone would think that I was expected.I then put her through her paces in a regatta held on Jervis Bay and her performance was exilerating. I am now adding a safety rail forward, for added protection of the crew when they are launching the Kite or working with the Jib. We will be out on the water over the winter period fine tuning our sailing skills, in readiness for the RL24 Nationals Titles being held on the Gippsland Lakes at Paynesville from the 2nd to the 7th of janruary 05. All going well I will see you there. Edit

RL2485Tickety BooIan West/ Alicia EllisAdelaide, SA, Australia Just bought her from Peter Charles at Hindmarsh Island, via Goolwa S.A. Peter said that he bought her from Rod Hunter @ Largs Bay about 5 years ago. She didnt have a name at that time, so Peter called her Tickety Boo (reference to Billy Connelly). She is in good shape, having been cruised around the Coorong and Lakes/Murray Mouth area in SA for the last few years, Peter also raced her from Goolwa. We are hoping to cruise the Coorong/Lakes/Murray Mouth area, and the coastal areas around Adelaide...also considering racing her at Brighton & Seacliff YC; maybe next season :) Edit

RL24196Bella Breeze Steve KnowltonDerry, NH, USAI have been looking for one of these boats for years. I purchased a bare hull about 20 years ago when I lived in Newbury MA. I fitted it out and brought it to the Boston Boat show. The boat and I parted ways in a costly divorce . Would of loved to have the original one back. This boat's former name is Stolen Moments . I noticed it for sale on Ebay . The boat didn't sell at auction so I made an offer which was accepted and drove 5 hours to NY to purchase it. Have the hull and rigging back in great shape , now need to work on the interior. Replace carpet etc..The sail number I got off the the old registry. Came with a set of Oday sails. Don't know what happened to the originals. Can't wait to get it in the water..... Edit
RL24340FREE SPIRITMichael RigbyDROMANA, VIC, Australia the sail number quite possibly should be 324 as for the reference further up which I believe is the same boat Edit

RL24420RRuby JayGareth & Bill AsherUpper Mt Gravatt, Qld, AustraliaBought 2007 from James Clow, Sippy Downs. Previous owner Charles Bartley in Manly. Originally had yellow hull. Possibly name Capricorn One. Was dumped at Noosa yacht and Rowing club some time in 2000/1. Bartley bought her 2003/4 from someone in Manly, sold her to James Clow 2005/6. November 2007 we bought her and berthed her at Hollywell. A bad attempt at covering the original yellow hull with what looked like house paint was remedied by complete paint job in 2014. Now white and dark blue. Replaced all deck fittings cost a bomb but looking forward to clear sky's and fair winds. Original owner was Jack Tullimans of Chelmer. Launched on the Brisbane River. He sold in 1978 but Jack sadly passed away in.May and I wasn't able to find out the next owner. Daughter thinks the name was 'Josephina" Anyone with more info greatly appreciated. After the 2023 Nationals she was reluctantly up for sale. Bought by Mark (Bob) and Alanna Watson from Harvey Bay. They wish to take her cruising. A good rest for the old Girl. We've had 14 years of great sailing on her. Miss her already. Edit
RL24420Ruby JaySteven BartleyHollywell, Qld, AustraliaNow sold to Bill Asher. Please see the later entry.
This vessel was purchased a couple of years ago from a backyard in Manly (Brisbane). It had a yellow hull but was not in very good condition at all. Has now been re-furbished and will be used for club races on the Gold Coast in 2007. We now have a white hull with dark blue below the waterline and a deck of pale blue. If anyone has any other information about the history of this boat I would be very pleased to hear from you.

RL24191Dream WeaverMark WalkerAlbany Creek, QLD, AustraliaI recently purchased my RL24 from Ken Luxford as he has not gotten out as he had planned. I have done some restoration work over the past 2 months and I intend to put her on the water in a couple of weeks. I will be changing the name as I find Dream Weaver very common, the name I have chosen is My Chanel after my one and only grandaughter. Repairs included sanding all the timbers, restain and relacquer, replacement of most ropes and various fittings. The trailer was in reasonable condition but replacement of side lights was waranted. I have joined the Moreton Bay Boat Club at Scarborough and intend to race her in this seasons winter club challenge. Edit

I striped off the original soft sail rig, bow & stern rails,and have slowly been bringing her up to current race spec with Goldspar mast,North racing sails, new rudder, travler, spinaker shoot and a complete refit.My kids and I are now having some fun racing her.Still sailed at Lake Wellington Yacht club and Gippsland Lakes Edit

I have had her for over 20 years now and she's still used for fishing and cruising and the occaisional trip out to the reef. The best we've done is 7 days on Davies Reef and the furthest out we've been is to Pith Reef which is 57 miles offshore. We were lucky enough to be blessed with excellent weather! If any owners are in the T'ville region and need some advice then! Edit

RL24ka186PAREMA Mark and Linda sewelldenham, / shark bay, WA, Australia I first bought Parema in 2002. I was 57 years old, single, a novice sailor, twice divorced, an Alcholic(20 years)a smoker of 43 years,and had suffered with a bad back for 25 years. my life was in a mess. and my sailing was a disaster. then two years ago, a friend told me about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. from then on my life started to improve, i gave up drinking and smoking,and last year i married a wonderfull christian lady. We are now running our own buisness, Canaan Land and Marine Services, and life is Plain sailing.Thank you Lord. Update. it is now 2010 Parema is looking, and sailing, better than ever with heaps of modifications.and Shark bays winds and tides are still a rewarding challenge. Update it is now 2016 and i am 70 my boat deserves a younger skipper she is still as spritely as ever but i am not. She is up for sale in buy and sell. 2017. a new start for Parema a young couple from Exmouth Phil and Elise have taken her to sail the Ningaloo reef may our Lord bless your sailing and may you enjoy Parema as much as we did.Mark and Linda. Update: 2024 I see Parema is now in a yard in Fremantle. Edit

Later he sold it and it went to the Deviot sailing Club in Tasmania. Then Brendan Dance of Sanford Tasmania acquired it and renamed it "Serenade". In March 2003 it was bought by Ian Cook and sailed at Colac Yacht Club - a mecca for RL24S. Ian renamed it "Screaming' Blue Murder". Ian sold it in 2019 to ........... from Somers, who after having it for approximately one year sold it to a friend.............. and it is now housed at Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club and has reverted to its original name of "Archina".

RL240Tiki 2Rob& June LeggGold Coast, Qld, "Tiki 2" was the origonal prototype RL 24, we built her under our house in Anglers Paradise on the Gold Coast in 1971, just 40 years ago , to a design I had drawn up 10 years previously, and had been dissuaded from building by my colleagues , because it was considered a boat of that size was too big to trail, however with the beautiful waters of the Broadwater at our doorstep now was the time to give it a try. Our boat was built using double diagonal planked construction, most of her fittings, along with the sails we made ourselves, and she had an over rotating mast, and just a timber swing keel without any ballast. We sailed "Tiki2" with the Southport keel boat fleet during the 71-72 season with success,and noted any improvments needed before using the hull as the plug for the mould of the early 24's. She was the Grandmother of the current fleet, and confusing as it may be, but just plain "Tiki" became our first GRP rL24. Edit

Used to sail at Mooloolaba but has been in a shed for 15 years. I bought it from Barry Marguetts in 2015. He cant remember who he bought it from in Brisbane around early 90's. Would like to know its history. It has a white hull and light blue anti skid. had a guess at sail number based on other boats built with same colours. Probably wrong, didn't have original sails.

RL24607Lightning Jack KingyCamperdown, Victoria , Australia History so far that we know of. 😎 Lightning Jack was part of a group of 8 boats that were a special order from a sailaway Boat Hire business based in Whitsunday Passage. Each of the boats was built to a specific marine survey set of specifications. Each boat was a swing Keel and had a light Blue coloured hull. After a season or two, the sailaway Hire Boat business located in Airlie Beach Qld, contacted the RL Yachts company to indicate that the RLs were not what they needed for the Whitsunday area. They boats were bought back by RL Yachts. Some time later the majority of these special order boats were sold to another business based on Port Stevens in NSW. They were used there for a number of years before being sold off. After this happened , the history gets very uncertain, there's an add showing two RL24's for sale in Perth, (I cant remember if it was 2003 or 2013)...... the add specifically states the name Lightning Jack as one of the RL's As to how "Jack" went from Brisbane Perth and back to Brisbane again and what transpired inbetween is still being investigated. However, 'Jack' ended back in Brisbane, before being offered for sale again and then was purchased by Ian Robbillard of Warrnambool, Ian purchased Lightning Jack from a car yard in brisbane before selling me Lightning Jack. As per "Jack's" history, we know that 8 RL's were specifically built for a sail-away charter company and these boats never received an allocated sail number as such. "Jack" was number 7 of this mini-fleet and so the owners gave him his initials LJ and the number 007 as his sail number (LJ007). Now I guess I could have just plucked a number out of the air that took my fancy and checked the associations register to see if it was taken or not and for all intensive purposes that probably would have passed the muster as such. So instead, after a few emails and some common sense being applied, the association has had a brilliantly simple solution to fix the problem...... Jack's 007 will be maintained in a small way that keeps his history correct and he gets an association allocated number that keeps the process neat and tidy and makes it all clear for future committees. Lightning Jack now has an association allocated number of 607. Quick history lesson..... RL600 was the last official boat to come out of the mould ... 8 RLs from the charter company never received a number as such. Jack was the 7th of this group... so he gets the 7 and the 600 together. ... 607. Should the other RLs from this charter group decide to be added to the register then it's a simple process to slot them in.... EG : 001 becomes 601 002 becomes 602 003 becomes 603 And so on....... 😎 007 became 607 Told you it was simple.... bloody brilliant really Many thanks to Paul Corben, Colin Boylan, and Rob Legg for their time and efforts on this tricky little problem that had a very happy out come in the end. "Jack" can be followed here...... https://www.facebook.com/Lightning-Jack-108840346439126/ Edit

The boat was owned by Harry,for a long time and he sold it to us on the condition that we will restore it and take my young family sailing. Thank you Harry, we all enjoy it - there's something in that wind that makes us feel so much more happy. Gee we laugh. Edit

RL24241Meg 7 (Prev. Capt Hook)David Anderson, QLD, Australia I have just purchased this boat (Dec 17). It is kept on the Gold Coast still in very good condition for its age. It has been renamed Meg 7 in honour of the previous owners late wife. We can't wait for our maiden voyage Xmas day 2017. Previously named Capt Hook and owned by Greg St Baker in Redcliffe who sanded and polished the hull to bring it back to life and sailed regularly to Moreton island and to Tin Can Bay. And a note from the original owner, Ray Hooker: Capt Hook is a swing keel Mk111 RL24 that I built in 1979 using Robs' moulds. It was the first RL to be built with a sandwich construction using a Firet coremat and Kledgecel. It was also one of the first to use a fully battened mainsail. The hull colour is white and topsides (non-slip areas) are light blue. I sold the boat in 1988 and have since lost track of it. I would be interested to know where it is now. A word of * WARNING * to all those doing any refitting / renovations. It was common practice for fibreglass boat builders at least up to the mid 80s and sometimes later to bond the various moulding together with a "bog" comprising polyester resin and ASBESTOS. The colour of the bog is no indication since it was common practice to add left over gel coat to the mix. RL Yachts abandoned the use of asbestos in the early 80s. Capt Hook contained NO asbestos. Be very careful or better still avoid drilling or grinding the gunwhale area, keel / centreboard area or anywhere interior mouldings meet the hull particularly below the water line. Edit
RL24445Easy beatGeoff WatsonGold Coast, QLD, AustraliaPurchased from Philip and Annette Crawford in January 2013. I understand they purchased her in 2007 from the original owner, Ray Churchwood. Apparently, the boat was fiited out by Ray and launched in 1984. She has HBBC (Hervey Bay Boat Club?) notated on her stern and has done approximately 10 Bay to Bays, first in 1984 last in 1996? Very happy with my purchase! Edit

So having taken over, we have bailed it out and are now starting the cleaning and repairing process and very excited. I now know this boat was bought by a French couple and sailed to Gove. They then sailed to Darwin, where the boat was purchased by a gent know in Gove as FIG JAM. He took it to Groote Island, then returned to Gove with it. Later it was sold on to one Paul Mastin, who had many years of fun and enjoyment with it. He sold it on to Monkey Bill before it passed on to Wendy and Tracey Geddes (See earlier register). Edit

RL24428TigaColin SkinnerKatoomba, NSW, AustraliaI sold her in 2008 to a fellow in Melbourne. A MkIV drop keel version. I bought her 2007 down at Jervis Bay. Actually I swapped my Roberts 25 keel boat for her and a little extra. At first I thought she might be too tender for me but after sailing a mate's RL24 mkIV at this seasons Nationals at Lake Macquarie I now know how to handle her. I changed down from a previous Seaway 25 as it was getting too heavy to handle and lift the mast. Nice boat though. The RL is a dream to launch, tow, and even sail. A true off the beach TS and a lot of fun with regular 8knot speeds being achieved. I took her out the heads (Sydney) a few days ago and she loved the swell. No water came over the rails. i am considering a trip to Port Stephens up the coast but will pick the weather and the crew. i have sailed all my TS's offshore including a Boomarang 20 in 55knots and the Seaway in 35 to 40knots. No worries and great fun. May see you guys around some where out there on the liquid stuff. Edit

RL24456September SongJeff MaynardMiddle Ridge, Queensland, AustraliaMK4 Drop keel Purchased in January 2023 4th owner. This is a fun boat kids love hiking out, it will take some time to make her mine but getting there, Based at Toowoomba, My kids and I are loving Leslie Dam and overnighting on Morton Bay, more adventures to be had as we get to know her, cruising while the kids learn, hoping to do some racing once she is set up. I spent 3 years looking at trailer sailers. Part of the attraction is the class and the active community, there are not many times I get on the bay and dont see another RL:) Edit

Not at all sure of her history but was bought by her previous owner without a mast. Thanks to Rob Legg who contacted me to advise that she is not the most northerly, I have to take second prize. I am happy with that. I will need to wait until May 2012 to find out if she floats... Any info on her past would be greatly appreciated. Edit

RL28F66? Sealeggs(Dingo)Neil EnsorSouthLake, W A 6164, Australia Bought from Cairns via Brisbane 18 months ago.Formerly known as "Dingo" (guess y the name was changed ?before purchase was finallised of course),to allay any superstition.Sealeggs came with an Italian diesel which actually started upon arrival but soon died on maiden voyage,with mast down!just off the groin outside Fremantle Sailing club.Even with a workshop manuel & a professional diesel mechanic she never was to start again.So this involved a major rethink resulting in a Mercury 15hp being installed on a custom built s/s bracket into the well,now she flys.I swear my G.P.S. read 9 knots!!! honest.I,m not convinced the 14ft boom with roller reefing is the ideal set up as I have experienced her rounding up over 15 knots of wind;or perhaps I need sailing lessons!My mast is quite heavy with 3 pairs of stays to support her; unlike the lighter mast,shorter boom & 2pair stays of "Leggend" recently sold from F.S.C. to Flying Squadron (now returned) .Sealeggs is an older RL28 having the fixed cabin roof,and fixed winch handles.Athough the son of the previously deaceased owner towed it from Cairns to Brisbaine for sale,I have experienced much wheelbearing problems,just towing it from the ramp to the hardstand !Sold in Nov 2002 to a couple in Rockingham who plan to spray it Maroon (much missed) Edit

Bolero is my first big boat after a 14 foot dinghy and a Boomeroo 22. The RL28 is such a comfortable boat. After a weekend aboard, I come home feeling relaxed and rested. She's also beautifully balanced, set the tiller with a shock cord and she sails herself, heeling and correcting with the swell. I'm very proud to join the RL family and look foward to many years of sailing adventures in and beyond Moreton Bay. Edit

Refinished hull back to glass then added a layer of glass in Vinyl ester resin topped with vinyl ester fill coat then final gel coat. This should eliminate any osmosis. There were some small bubbles around the water line when the boat was purchased. I rebuilt around the keelbox eliminating a number of years of nudging reefs. I suspect this boat was made for charter but have no real history to work with, any help I would appreciate. Sails well but seems to have a lot of weather helm in a blow. Edit

RL28152Sea HorseMel TeudtCarrara, QLD, AustraliaPurchased in January 2007 from Peter (Charley) and Anne Pratt, the boat was then named Charley's Pride Peter bought the hull and all other fittings and completed construction on the front lawn of his home by 1990. After taking possession my brother and I sailed her up to Mooloolaba for our maiden voyage, and the return trip to the Gold Coast. The boat was then trailered to Sydney, where I spent several weeks sailing around Sydney Harbour before starting restoration works. Under her new name SEA HORSE, she was re-launched in January 2009 with a new Mercury 15hp 4 stroke motor which proved to be ideal. We are now requesting information on a suitable furler for the jib, and help from anyone who has installed a holding tank for the toilet system. We plan to sail/motor her down the Hawkesbury River to Broken Bay in the next few weeks, and next year our plan is to return to Queensland and the Whitsundays. Edit

RL28PolarisRob RosewornePort Stephens, NSW, AustraliaBuilt to Survey, still able to hold her own in general race conditions, testament to design that Survey did not require any structural adjustment. Has been used as a Bareboat for Hire in Port Stephens for many years. Ideally suited to this area and spends most weeks, resting in the Myall Lakes system. The Layout of the RL28 has proven to be most favourable to families of up to 6. When not on hire, sits at the Peppers Anchorage Corlette and is often used for Team Building exercises for conferences and Match Races against her Sister Yacht "Nautilus", also an RL28. Edit
RL28144black beardray armstronggosford, nsw, australiaHi, I have owned this boat for about 15 years or so. I bought it from a bloke in Qld who had bought it from the original owner. Apparently it was one of the last RL 28's made & was built for a Brisbane doctor to race. It was a special build & much kevlar & light weight materials were used. It also had extra mast height. The story goes that the doctor was so severally handicapped, after winning most races on the East Coast that he sold it in disgust! I would love to find out if all this was true, so if anyone has any info on black beard (sail # 144)I would love to hear from them. Many thanks. Edit

RL28125SandpiperGarry BeattieElliott Heads, Qld, Australia We purchased "Sandpiper" from Stephen Claffey in Maryborough (9/3/2006) and it now calls Elliott Heads it's home port. We have made some changes such as a larger, 130W solar panel, 50L Fridge, 45L Freezer, GPS system, DVD with 15" LCD TV, BBQ etc to make it more of a cruising boat. We enjoy sailing it off Fraser Island regularly and look forward to our annual Whale Watching Adventure Cruise which we organise each year. In 2007 we plan to modify the trailer to make it more suitable for long distance towing so that we can visit places such as the Whitsundays, Sydney Harbour, Port Philip Bay and, possibly Tasmania. We tow the boat with 100 SERIES Landcruiser running both petrol and LPG. UPDATE January 2014: We have now owned Sandpiper for 8 years and I love this boat. It now has a Peterson Trailers Saltwater Series Tri axle aluminium trailer underneath it and tows like a dream. In 2013 the Volvo Penta Diesel motor was given a complete overhaul and reconditioned. A tour around Australia is now very much on the cards. Edit

RL28"K-Sera"Alan ChesterTrinity Park, QLD, AustraliaBought from Richard Hartog in Albany Park-Brisbane-QLD who made some 50+ terrific minor and major changes to this RL28 and his work and thinking was great - opened her right up with a full sliding hatch and dropped the stair height, opened the front bow opening and relocated the galley to on top of the keel box and RH side up front. His work is appreciated in making K-Sera a lovely yacht to now live in and sail. Set up for total single handed mast raising (easy). Made her stronger and added extra storage and finer pints. The canopy made of fibreglass in lieu of a Bimini is amazing at shade and holds 2 x 80W solar panels. I'll get some shots up when she is re-upholstered and cleaned up. (Xmas 2013) Edit

RL34MoonshineGraham Morris, NSW, AustraliaMoonshine was the plug for the 34 foot boats. I bought moonshine from southport Qld in about 1985 and sold her to her new owner in about 1995. She was then located at Port Stephens. She was a great boat to sail, mostly single handed, and was quite fast under conditions up to 25knots of wind. She had a Volvo diesel with the sail drive leg and folding prop. The motor was mounted aft of the cockpit. I sailed out the Hacking River and on many occasions saw people amazed at where she could go, them not knowing she had a retractable Centre board. She sailed very well in light to moderate conditions with centre board up. Edit

RL34Climax. (previously Moonshine)Terry&Kathy ChiversGrafton, NSW, Australia Our second Rl34 previously owned AbFab we raced and cruised with Climax and Abfab until 2006. Max Moriris purchased Moonshine from her owners in Port Stevens NSW and changed her name to Climax we raced both these RL34s together until 2006. We then sailed Climax together until early 2012 When max passed on. We now continue to sail her with Max in spirit. Climax is the original Rl34 (the plug) she has a timber hull which the moulds were taken off. Today climax still has her original gelcoat in good condition , she carries a Volvo 30hp with100 hours on the clock, she is fitted with many cruising extras but still turns many heads in club races, she points very high due to her running back stays but like all Rl34s loves to run down wind with a kite or her sails goose winged and her keel up!,,,,,,, just try and catch her Edit

RL34SV ROMADavid MarshBokarina, QLD, AustraliaPurchased in April 08 she had sat for 12 months at the Yamba marina before I purchased her and sailed her up the coast to her new home at Mooloolabar. Was an interesting sail in that the Volvo Penta diesel had overheated and had to be shut down just prior to being hit by a storm off the coast of Ballina. Managed to get the Genoa furled but the severe squall hit before I could get the main down and as a result the main exploded and ended up a rag. Completed the journey on the poled out Genoa and finally found the motor overheating problem and fixed it in time to complete the last 10 hours with the Volvo purring like a kitten. Now that she is home she will be spruced up with a new main and lots of love and care. A great seaworthy boat!! Would love to contact other RL34 owners and learn more about the boat.

RL34NorsemanQDick CribbBrisbane, Qld, Australia NorsemanQ is moored at the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club in Manly. This boat was originally built to survey for my brother-in-law Ian Wilson and I have owned it for the last 6-7 years since Ian's health prevented him from using it. It has had one other owner for 9 months just recently for a trip to Hinchinbrook Island and back and I repurchased it September this year. It was originally fitted out as a sail training vessel. I have since replaced the Volvo MD7B with a Volvo Penta 2030. It had totally new running and standing rigging in 2005. Edit

Dagger board is full height giving 6ft. draft, board down. Surveyors report for insurance earlier this year was complimentary. Have cruised to the Sandy Straits and Whitsundays many times and as far north as Lizard Island. She has proved to be a safe and reliable yacht on coastal cruising and a pleasure to sail.Currently moored at RQYS, Manly, Brisbane. Edit

Status 580Slipstream #5 SlipstreamJaime LaurenteGold Coast, QLD, Australia Just purchased October ,07 from Arnold Broekman in Lake Macquarie 2005-07. 2003-05 by another owner just north of Newcastle. Was owned for 8 years(prior) again by Arnold and was bought from David Bray Yachts. First launched early '90s. Now has 16ft skiff mast and a boom cut-off to suit Status sail area. Has 505 5 year old spinnaker with oldish genoa and jib that needs replacement for racing. Hull and stays are in good condition. 40kg of lead added to bulb keel and mast step moved 4 inches forward to prevent luffing and heeling in strong breeze. I just painted her and looks great. Looking forward to see you in the water. Edit

Status 580223KabootaPaul KnaapWoodstock, NSW, AustThis boat was bought from LMYC in about 2014 for the Carcoar Dam Sailing Club as a club boat. It was damaged by a cow (thrown off it's trailer)and I bought it from the club. I don't think the sail number is correct although the main has the original Status symbol. She has structural damage in the aft bulkheads which I am repairing. Edit

Del had purchased the boat from Phonse O'Bryan some years earlier. I sail her in and around Geelong and the Bellarine and was looking forward to the RL Nationals being held at Colac until they unfortunately had to be cancelled.

Status 58032The BoxAngie RickwoodHamilton Island, Queensland, AustraliaAfter much discussion wih Hamos' Commodorable, Greg Alward(The Lemon) and Windsurfing Denis (Cool Runnings), I tracked down The Box in Southport August 2006. It was packed and sent to the island via road frieght, 4wd and barge. She has an old 16ft skiff mast. No running backstays. I have lifted her and the hull is good. A nice royal blue. It might have been red. However I really have to give The Box a lot of love as she is tired. Everthing I go to use I have to fix or replace. A friend has rebuilt the rudder and she balances nicely. I am on the look out for skiff or status sails as the wardrobe is flogged and will be no doubt be for another season. Another Status 580?! I had my first sail the other day and it just rocked. The new jackstays were really tested in 25 knots. I am teaching my friends to sail and what a great boat for teaching. Everyone wants to go in my Box! Twilight racing has started. With 3 Status 580s we need a sponsor for our division. I can be found between the Boatyard and Marina Office. Fair winds my friend! Edit

Status 58011the LemonGreg AlwardHamilton Island, Qld, AustraliaPurchased from Paynesville 1999 and delivered to Hamilton Isl by truck under the bow of a Farr40 from Williamstown. Named the Lemon after our first Wed twilight race when everything that could have gone wrong just about did for an old neglected boat. Has since undergone refit with new rigg and sails to resemble MKIII model, with backstay we fly Etchell spinnakers, on board GPS proves speed over 14knts water pours in through the centre board case. Have competed in 3 Bay to Bay races, ASPAC Master Games at Southport, 190 twilight races, 29 regattas and won lots of trophies. Crew Trevor Hewitt and I are expat Elwood Sailing Club junior members, now in our later years we call the status 19 a "gentlemans skiff" and have a ball. There are now two 580's competing at Hamo and looking for more. If anyone would like to join us at the CYC of H.I. with their RL's please contact me the Commodore. Edit
