Interesting project - and a twist on the hardtop.

If you frequent the MG thread you might have met Saltiga who live in Australia. We have been chatting and he sent me a few pics. The magnitude of the project made me think others might want to see. Plus there is a twist. (and who doesn't love a twist)

His first project is Big Healey which he got from Texas.

Impressive indeed!

All it takes is luck, time, dedication, skills ... and a LOT of $$$!

(How does one "acquire" a trimaran?)

The same way one acquires a car - they follow you home! (It followed me, can I keep it?)
