Police Car, KA 9333

From RB Sailing Blog: "She was then sold to Alan Duffy in or about 1996 who raced her in short offshore races out of Broken Bay.  He carried out a restoration before the 408 mile Gosford to Lord Howe race, as a shakedown for the 2002 Sydney Hobart race. The restoration involved extensive fairing of the alloy hull and repainting the boat in her original colours."

2002 Alan Duffy has virtually rebuilt Police Car to her original state in order to compete in her first Hobart since the 50th race in 1994
