The WA H28 site is dedicate to WA born H28's and as such should have no truck with foreigners.
I was recently contacted by Lance Ross of Melbourne, an artist and owner of a particularly interesting H28 image in oil which he wishes to sell ( I believe ). On speaking to other H28 members in Perth they already have copies of his print in water colour and in that vein I am prepared to put it on line as an encouragement to those who have painted H28's in WA to offer their works on line.
This is the story that Lance has given me.
The ketch in H28
– Jib 'n' Jigger was sailed for many years by the late John MacDonald, once
Commodore of the H28 Association in Victoria, hence the Commodore's swallowtail
burgee at the masthead – very similar to the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria's
burgee which is blue in the mast side, top panel. The H28 was kept at the
RYCV. But he told me he didn't own it. It was loaned to him all
that time and at some stage he told me the family was wishing to reclaim
it. I can't recall it's name. If that's not sufficient help,
given some time, I may be able to dig out a photograph of it, if I have
one. My reference was the same H28 as in the H28 Limited Edition Prints
and you will note it is seen on exactly the same angle – and the best angle for
showing most yachts – from the leeward, aft quarter
The reference I believe he makes is to the watercolor that he has made from the original oil and has been given a little artistic license to add a main sail and a second person on the boat. No problems with that.
