Didi 950 Project in Australia

Fred Grimminck has been building a Didi 950 in Australia for a few years. His project is nearing completion and the boat will be launched soon. Fred sent me these photos of his boat on a trailer, ready for transport to the launch site. He has built his boat as a fast cruiser, so it has been fitted out more heavily than one built for racing. This design was drawn to the Class 950 box rule and is built from plywood using our radius chine plywood method, with a topside chine to increase power-reaching performance. Fred has built her with the lifting keep option.
