Talitha is a carvel planked Colin Archer design built in Sydney in 1940 by William L. Holmes. She has sailed the Pacific and south and east coasts of Australia. She is in bad state, I picked her up as a Christmas gift to myself in December 2015! She has Oregon (Douglas Fir) planking on Spotted Gum (Eucalyptus maculate) with White Beech deck planks. Follow along as I attempt to bring her back to her original glory of hardwoods, bronze and long days sailing Australia!
