Registration is NSW and Canada, Port of Montreal.
When I bought the boat it was possible to transfer the Montreal registration to me because I am a British Commonwealth citizen - this was far cheaper than going through the international surveyors to reregister the boat. International Registration is Montreal, Canada for leaving the country.

Hull was built as the plug for the series mould. Hull is faired with filler which has protected it from Osmosis.
Rudder is conventional FG where minor osmosis repaired May 2022 with epoxy glass.

Toilet seacocks are Blakes tapered bronze with grease nipples.
Skin fittings elsewhere are BSP thread and have bronze ball valves for sink, cockpit drains and bilge pump, Exhaust seacock is stainless steel ball valve.
Gas locker drain has a tapered bronze seacock.

Cockpit lockers have lockable overcentre latches.
Main washboard has dogs inside.
Half washboard fits above the bridgedeck.
Cockpit is safer because of the bridgedeck which was removed on e. G. Some S&S34 yachts.

Equiped with Cap Horn Windvane steering. Atlantic and Pacific Crossings.
Cap Horn has spare paddle and light weather vane.
Bushes were renewed by designer only about 1000 miles ago.

Has 3 fuel tanks. Backup 40litre can be electrically pumped into main tank. 12litre day tank is gravity feed separate filter.
Water indicating trasparent fuel filter base has never been fouled.
Always used fuel additive and never had a problem with Diesel.
New Electric Fuel Pump fitted so mechanical one removed to allow easy access to cylinder block anodes.

Pacific Cruising to Lord Howe, Norfolk, New Zealand, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

Numerous Tasman crossings.

6ft 2inch headroom inside. Similar to Alberg30 (but larger) - which has done circumnavigations with the CapHorn windvane.

Watermaker, Gas Heater, Three Anchors, 73m of 8mm chain - just regalvanised, 15m spare chain. Nesting Dinghy, Storm Jib, Main Trisail. HF Radio Tuner Backstay Antenna, VHF. Mast Steps (folding). Nav lights 2 systems, Deck and masthead Tricolour/Strobe.
Parachute Sea Anchor with Pardeys, "Storm Tactics Handbook" control system successfully used in Tasman Sea Storm.
Maintrysail has a separate track to the mainsail.
The Alice Colleen heaves to or lies to the parachute with the appropriate size of mainsail (4 reefs) or the trisail alone.
Parachute sea anchor, nylon rode and adjustment system (iaw Pardey, Storm Tactics book).

Various spare parts. E. G. Bottom rudder bearing, stuffing box, shaft bearing, starter motor, Nav lights, Staylock fittings, oars, waterpump parts, alternator, injectors, injector pipes, lub oil pipe, engine mounts, belts, fuel filters, exhaust mixer elbow, exhaust backflow watertrap tank.

3GMD Yanmar engine about 2500 hours.

Has survived a Storm at sea in the Tasman using the parachute.

Strong Keel hung rudder.

Owner has either modified or fixed almost everything on this boat at one time or another and has extensive information and experience which can be passed on.
