The following year, 1963, saw the launching of the 35-foot sloop Narawi for Robert Minter and Jock Simpson, of Sydney. She was built of Huon pine planking over hardwood ribs. Jock also sailed on this delivery trip in company with the new owners. He remembers the owners wives waved to them from the deck of a tourist ship when the two vessels sailed close to each other off the coast of Eden en route to Sydney. "Narawi was important because it was really the first of the 35-foot sloops which I called the Abel Tasman design. Four were built." The design became known as the "Abel Tasman 64" taken from the yearJock modified the plans. Three of the designs were built in Tasmania and of the four, two unfortunately have been wrecked. The second of the design, Kaiulani, was built in Cygnet by the Wilson brothers for the late Lindsay Masters of Melbourne, who had sold her prior to being wrecked at the mouth of the Tamar River in 1988. She had just finished competing in the Queenscliffe to Devonport race. The third "AT" design, Pono, was built in New Zealand. On returning from her second Auckland-Suva race, in the hands of her next owner, Pono struck an object (thought to be a submerged container) one night and sank very quickly. Luckily the crew were able to scramble into the liferaft in darkness but drifted for ten days at sea until being washed ashore on Pentecost Island in the New Hebrides. From there they were taken back to New Zealand. The most recent of the design, Sagan, was built near Cygnet in 1985 by owner Derek Shields, of Gardners Bay. As a result of Pono's fate, Derek had large, quickly inflatable bags installed in her bilges. She sailed from Tasmania to the Great Barrier Reef and on to Cairns where she stayed for several months. Afterwards, she cruised round the top end of Australia, into the Indian Ocean (taking in the islands) and down the coast of Africa where she stayed for a few months in Kenya. She then sailed down to Capetown and it was from here that Derek sailed her single-handed back to Melbourne, Victoria. These extensive cruises were all apparently trouble-free. She was due to return to Tasmania at the end of last year .
