To the members of the site,

Thankyou for the information you have provided me on BW's it has been very useful. The limited numbers of BW owners in Australia makes a site like this a very valuable resource. Keep up the good work everyone it is appreciated.

I am now the very proud owner of a 1994 Dauntless 15' powered by a 50hp Honda. BW's are very rare and expensive in Australia so I consider myself very lucky. I like other D15 owners have gained experience by ocean and dingy racing including a stint in the States. I could never understand why most power boats were not self draining or have built in positive bouyancy. I value my life.

To any other BW oowners in Australia let us know via this site and we might be able to share resources.

Stoopsy, is that the personal import from Victoria? It sounds like a good boat with very low hrs on the motor. The boat was used at an R&D company. Where do you boat? I have a 13'classic on Sydney Hbr.

Jonathan, got it in one. It is the boat you described. My previous boat was a classic 13 which was in poor repair. I sold it to a friend who is the process of doing it up. great boat but not really suited to the short chop on Port Phillip Bay. It would be great on Sydney Harbour and the waterways arround Sydney. A number of years ago I used to sail a 16' skiff from Gosford. I also did a Sabot nationals there. I was really envious of the kids that would cruise arround Bribane waters in their tinnies. The Classic 13' would be so much better than the tinnies.
We will use the boat mainly on the Mornington Peninsula but because of the trailability of the D15 I would like to explore other waterways around Victoria.
Do you know the history of your BW? What is it powered by? Have you seen many other BW's in Sydney? What do you mainly use the boat for?
Good to hear from you.
