Hi everyone This is my second venture into model boat building. The first model was an unbuilt yacht design by a Sydney amateur yacht designer; this one is a much earlier design by the same man - E.C. "Cliff" Gale. Karoo was a 20' open sailing boat with a bowsprit & gaff sloop rig. Karoo was raced & was also a family boat. Incredibly they (Cliff & Mrs Gale, plus 3 strapping young sons) used to pack her full of gear for holidays & spend a week or two aboard on Pittwater, Broken Bay & the associated waterways Cowan Creek, Coal & Candle Creek etc.
Introduction: Welcome to my Build Log on the my "commission" build of a Westerly Discus 33. The Westerly Discus is a popular cruising yacht design of the late 1980's with hundreds being built by Westerly Marine Construction of Hampshire (UK) until liquidation in early 2000. The Discus 33 was designed by John Laurent-Giles, who drew two design iterations, sloop rigged, and ketch rigged, both with either a fin keel or bilge keels.
