Hi Graeme, you were enquiring about a hard dodger for red william last year. Did you have any luck?
I am interested in the same.
please could you let me know how you got on.
Red William was originally commissioned for William (Bill) aka “Ocker” Hales from Royal Yacht Club of Victoria in Williamstown VIC. He was the Managing Director of Red Tulip Chocolates. I raced against Ocker in all sorts of boats over many years. I was pleased to be the broker for the sale of Red William from Chuck Amos to Peter Hamilton & co.
I sailed on Red William with Bill Hales from Williamstown a lot in the 90s. Nice Boat
Hello Chris, Bill was not a director of Red Tulip, he was partner in Craig and Hales Confectionery. I sailed with him in his YW Diamond Chaos until the last race on RW which he reluctantly sold due to his failing health. Matt Solly
