Willi Willi II, Mottle 33 1982
Photos updated 29/3/2022. Thanks for all the interest in Willi Willi II, but no sale will be able to go ahead untill l return to Tas in a few weeks.
The brown marks on the decks are repaired but not finished work and are epoxied microballons.
Have also added some more works that were done and need doing, this has been an ongoing project and there has been plenty that l haven't added as yet.

Now much upgraded from when l bought her in2015 in Qld and sailed back to Tamar river Tas. As it was in a very poor state, practically nothing working.
New mainsail (slightly undersized), New Genoa (120%), AIS Transceiver

2016- On the hard for 4 months to repair the osmosis which was worst than l had initially thought.
Below water line hand scraped back to gelcoat and all osmosis ground out, repeatable cleaned and dried for 3 months, confirmed no moister, damage repaired and then 6 coats of epoxy as the barrier coat.
Substantial rear mooring cleats installed.
Electric anchor winch installed, up sizing chain from 8mm to 10mm x 65m (now back to 37m).
Plough anchor replaced with 16kg genuine Bruce.
Bimini arch and cover installed, works well but is a bit agriculturally.
80 watt solar panel increased to 250watt.
Rudder removed and repaired, large circular quadrant and bracing installed to take large auto pilot linear drive.
Large spinnaker pole used for the drifter (now l have one) and for lifting dinghy on/off the aft cabin roof using the main halyard.
The current dinghy is adequate for me with an outboard on, but with 2 people would be awkward, l suggest a larger dinghy (which l have, a 10ft alloy, but leaks like a sieve, buyer can have if wanted).

2018- On the hard for 2 months, installed separate boarding and dive ladder. Alter stern seat to enable walk thru access to boarding ladder. You can walk on board in full scuba gear.
Hard dodger installed (still to have window screws replaced by s/s metal treads)
Boom Bag version 1.
Mast removed and tabernacle installed to enable mast lowering.
Mast refurbished, new rigging.
Large twin bow roller fitted to take and support larger anchor and mooring ropes.
Off to the Whitsundays for 6 months.

2021- Replaced Bukh DV20 motor and sail drive with a Yanmar GM30 and SD20 sail drive.
Motor was from a friend who replaced his catamaran motors, motor was approx 2000hs old after rebuild, now has 2200 on it.
Replaced sail drive bellows/bladders.
New sail drive engine mount.
All prop shaft bearings and seals replace.
Made sail drive positive pressure so seal failure wont lead to water ingress into gearbox.
Repaired stiff steering, steering cables replaced.
Have spare starter motor and alternator, as well as a not running complete motor (apart from the parts l have taken off it for spares) and sail drive and prop, which can go with the sale.
New nylon drifter sail on a bottom up furler and prod pole.
Topsides painted.
Diesel heater fitted.
Boom bag version 2
Removed diesel tank, install inspection hatch, clean and replace (this is easier said than done).
Water tanks opened and cleaned.
Altered mainsail reefing to 2 line, reefing from cockpit.
Replace halyard wiches with self tailing and added 4 rope clutches.

2022-Radar/wind transducer and wind generator poles mounted, with the ability with some more effort to take dingy davits.

This boat is a modified version with an aerodynamic lead keel bolted to the hull, it sails very well and has logged speeds consistently in double figures when down wind. Max speed so far 14knot with just poled out headsal.

There is still work to be done to tidy her right up, but all the hard and expensive stuff has been done.
The deck/cockpit shows quite a lot of gelcoat crazing at the high load areas. These have not increased in the time l have had her doing about 7000 miles in some very trying conditions, particularly around Flinders island and the West Coast of Tas.

I am upsizing but will miss my Mottle, she has proven to me what a great design they are, very manageable solo and easily the best boat for the bucks on the market, go the mighty Mottle 33.

I will supply a vid of the boat hopefully sometime tomorrow (weather has blown this, next good day it will have to be), as well as a detailed inventory (might happen today 27/2/22).

Work to do if wanting, but WWII is more than capable of going anywhere in the condition she is in. I am currently looking like upsizing on a very quick sale, so WWII is in her worst looking case, as l was away for 5 days on her last trip and haven't tidied her up, any way jobs which can be done, but aren't required before taking off with her.
1) Finnish painting timber rubbing strakes below toe rail. 1 side done, other was in the shade on last haul out so too damp to finish.
2) Install timber to transom seating area. I never use it so haven't every worried.
3) Continue repairing deck gelcoat crazing. This isn't structurally important, otherwise l would have done it. When finished the deck will need to be painted.
4) When at Flinders Island in November 21, l hit an uncharted granite rock at 5 knots. The only damage caused were 2 bites out of the lead keel, which of course removed the antifoul, so there are some barnacles growing in those 2 spots.
5) The rubber flap over the sail drive hole (there to lessen water turbulence, as well as to keep the inside area dark to decrease growth) wasn't cleaned properly before gluing due to being in a rush and hence a piece of it slipped down and was going tap tap when the propeller touched it after a few months of being relaunched, so l cut it off, this need to be cleaned and re-glued.
6) Just all the other little things that are ongoing, but as is, it can be loaded with fuel, food, water, lots of grog and can go off for a trip around Australia.
7) Wind generator (which l have only installed in the last months, was second hand, which l replaced the bearings on, it is currently playing up (l'm still to look at that)
8) Tidy up the last lot of wiring l did recently for the radar/wind gen and Furuno NavNet ETR6/10 sounder module and install the backing plates for the poles.
9) Rudder shaft seal, needs replacing. When pushed hard (this starts at winds above 20knts) in following seas some water gets passed the seal and goes into the bilge (nothing to get worried about).

No it is not Australian Registered.

This boat is not the best example of the Mottle, but it is pretty good and very well equipped and has been a labour of hate (l meant love) for me over the last 6 years.
Regards Kevin
