`LIGHTWAVE’ FACTORY, COOMERA, GOLD COAST, QUEENSLAND … 23RD MAY 2005

 On the last day in Paradise …  Roger, Cath, Sally and I visited the Lightwave Catamaran factory, which is building Roger’s new 38 foot catamaran … ready in October/November ’05 … cost, not much change from $600,000.

* A VERY CLEVER TRAILER FOR HARMLESSLY REMOVING CATAMARANS FROM THE WATER! *

We also met up with Bill and Barbara Hastings from Lightwave Catamaran, `Bilbara’, at the factory and ended up having a delicious lunch at the restaurant run by the Riviera Group of boat-builders.  They took 32 orders for new boats at the Show … and in the main their craft go for around $1,000,000 plus, per!

 

* TRAILER HYDRAULICALLY LIFTS CAT FROM UNDER BRIDGEDECK! *

* WITH TWO OPERATORS, THIS APPEARS TO BE THE SAFEST WAY TO REMOVE A `CAT' FROM THE WATER ... OTHER METHODS HAVE CAUSED GREAT DAMAGE! *

 

Next day, 24th May ’05, back onto the tilt-train for Bundaberg and onboard Tsunami.  A great adventure over!
