what a lovely thing to say!

best part of owning one is when i come behind all the others i say " ahhh but your not sailing the same boat, witch's handle very differently in that kind of breeze"

i try to look clever when i say this!

I am not familiar with Stingrays. In photos they certainly look very similar to a Black Witch. I can't find much information on them. According to Wikipedia they were designed in the 1960s. Does anyone have any more detailed information on their history?

Thanks for the photos' date=' much appreciated. If I could find one, I would buy it as well. Is the one owned by Mick the only one left in existence? Maybe there's a few more hidden away somewhere?[/quote']

Many thanks to casper for showing me his Black Witch. As far as I can tell it is more or less identical to Mick's. Casper's sail number is 305 and Mick's is 303, so I am guessing that they are from the same batch.

The Black Witches I am familiar with had plywood hulls, and were built around 1970 in Darwin. I read on another thread that only 19 were built. Casper's has fibreglass hulls, so I presume that a second series of Black Witches was built some time later.

Does anyone have any information on this? I would like to know when and where the second series was built, and who built them.
