2017 "Boating", extract of australian John Webber story,
2020 New owner
from Facebook "She's Diablo, an S&S
half tonner designed in 1968. Built in NZ in kauri timber in 1970. Originally
built for kiwi Russell Hume to race in half ton cup in 1970. Her sister ship
Contender did very well but both became obsolete soon after when Bruce Farr
arrived on the scene with, then revolutionary, "Titus Canby". I own
Diablo now and am at the final stages of full restoration from a sad state.
She's registered in NZ, sailing in the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland."
