"WIRELESS" is a very good example of wonderful Norwalk Islands Sharpie design.
Easily single-handed by someone with a little experience under their belt (I do it regularly) - even just small boat sailing because she works like a much smaller boat: one sheat winch, a few rope clutches and a handful of cam-cleats is all the running gear needed.
No standing rigging at all - just two engineered tapered spun aluminium masts which flex at the top to depower the sails in sudden gusts.
Stiff form stability resists heeling past 25 degrees. Approx. 60% ballast ratio (2000kg of lead). Self righting to 140 degrees.
True shallow draft - she sails in 1m of water with centre board down 1/3 and can motor in 0.5m, board up. Hard chined and flat bottomed, she sits solidly and level on sand or mud. She has a good turn of speed when broad reaching and running and sails hands-off on all points forward. Runs downwind wing on wing like a swan - beautiful!
Large self-draining cockpit for 5-6 with huge dry lockers (I fit in them @ 182cm).
Real accommodation in the large cabin with standing headroom for 1.85m crew. Toilet/shower, kitchenette, large folding dining table and plenty of storage. Zip lines under side shelves keep gear on the seats when underway.
She's on a double ended mooring at Warneet VIC, right in front of the yacht club. Cop-r-Bote anti-fouling and topsides paint job done in May 2018.
A mooring is available (sold separately). It is in the Werribee River mouth at Werribee South (a pile mooring 4 years old) for $750 separately. Rated for a 3500kg vessel.
Bruce Kirby designed flat bottomed sharpie with swing centreboard and swing up transom hung rudder. 3500kg displacement.
Well built using Queensland Hoop Pine and Bote Cote epoxy system throughout. Pics of build can be provided. Numerous layers of heavy double bias glass cloth with umpteen coats of epoxy on hull inside and out make this yacht stiff and durable.
