About Paul

Help save this 1940 28-foot Colin Archer double-ender from the chainsaw! Talitha is a carvel planked Colin Archer design built in Sydney in 1940 by William L. Holmes. She has sailed the Pacific and south and east coasts of Australia. She is in bad state, I picked her up as a Christmas gift to myself! She has Oregon (Douglas Fir) planking on Spotted Gum (Eucalyptus maculate) with Beech deck planks. Donate to help bring her back to her original glory of hardwoods, bronze and long days sailing Australia!
