fairly new to this group and have started to save a Tasman 22 and would like others to share with me their tasman 22 stories

Probably not that many people on this forum old enough to remember the Tasman 22. They were certainly popular in NSW for JOG racing in the 1960's. The reverse sheer and bubble cabin probably did not appeal to many. I never owned or sailed one but I liked the concept. There was a rare trailer sailer version for sale on the South Coast awhile back and there was an extremely deep keel version for sale in Sydney recently. What do you own?

I actually own a tasman 22 currently and am that old i actually build some of these back when , including the one Kay cottee owned . it was a deep fin keel version .the trailer sailer version you saw may have been the one that Ron Miller from Peter Green shipchanderly in San Soicy built and fitted out himself , it had small carvings on some of the cupboard doors

Hi Vandermoeler, never heard of a Tasman 22, went looking for some info and Nothing!
Ramona's comment about the reverse sheer has me fascinated, there are so few designs that use it. Do you have any pictures you can share? how is your progress with your re-build?

Yes finding info is near impossible. Probably Seacraft magazine or Modern Boating did a review or test sail of it when it first launched but a search doesn't bring up any links. See here a post of 2017 re outboards;

There was one for sale around midyear last year down at Cronulla for $1500 needing refurbishing. Can't find it listed now.

There used to be heaps of pictures online. Strange how they are hard to come by. Have to wait till the next one comes on the market.

They definitely need a two-tone cabin paint treatment to reduce the hump-like appearance, something like a dark blue strip around the window height.

It looks very similar to the English Trekka design.

Interesting that in 1996 someone would choose that design. The colour scheme definitely helps with the appearance of the reverse sheer. The reverse sheer gives a much larger interior space but some people don't like the look.

Even more so in 2021.

A more modern design with reverse sheer is the 33' Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349 of which 49 have been sold in Australia.

Clever design of the cabin window certainly helps soften the reverse sheer.

And gives a great view from inside!

Not much privacy on that boat!

Looks like they got the cabin sole from Bunnings.
