'Blockbuster' rejoins the fleet WA710

Sounds like we have another boat rejoining the ranks next season with Blockbuster aka 'Daisy' WA 710 recently being acquired by seasoned Keelboat/Sportsboat/Dinghy Sailor Greg Reynolds.

Daisy has been sitting idle ever since the state championships 3 years ago when the wire man put its foot through the soft ply deck. It will take a alot of work to restore her but if anyone is going to do it Greg will. He is famous for spending way too much time around boats instead of doing real work. I believe he has also signed up one of his regular keel boat crew Paul to hang on the wire and help him restore it.

Greg will be changing the name back to the original blockbuster although its current name does work well with his longtime nickname of 'flower'. Greg aims to sail the boat out of Mandurah and Mounts bay.

The sharpie class looks forward to Blockbuster rejoining the fleet for the 2010/2011 Season.
