NEW YORK 46 AB

Hi Bruce,

I am friends with Ray Crake of Western Australia who built a Roberts New York 46’ which he named ‘Komeova’. I must say I am very impressed with the outcome and have been out on Komeóva in some pretty strong conditions.

The boat felt extremely strong and sure-footed in a following 5-6 meter swell on the journey from Dunsborough to Rottnest Island then Rottnest Island to Fremantle the following day.  Kind regards, PAUL DURKIN – BSc (UWA)

"Komeova"
The beautiful example of the NY 46 shown here was built by Ray Crake; Ray combined the NY 46 A and B versions to create this beautiful example in radius chine steel.

HERE IS WHAT RAY HAD TO SAY:

Hi Bruce,

First good sail was 120 nm ocean. We had only been out for 2 hrs sailing previously, though we had been motor testing / system testing for a few hrs as well prior to the trip.  Less than 14 hrs from point to point!!  Happy as I am!

Had varying winds (5 to 17 knots) from 40 degrees apparent to about 200 degrees on the port side 90% of the time.  Seas with a 3 metre swell.

Full main (quite a roachy loose footed main 10 oz sail - dropped mast from 65' to just over 60' but extended boom by about 2.5' full batten with roller cars with lazy jacks) and 135% furling genoa for first 7 hours with wind about 12 - 14 knots at between 40 to 80 degrees apparent. averaged 7 knots +. No weather helm, not tender at all and accelerated well and the motion was beautiful!!!  Still riding slightly high in water but I will add a keel heel of about 1250 kg this spring as I believe any impact will only be positive! 

First light wind dropped to 5 - 10 knots and went aft of the beam. Set the Gennaker (the Plum!) which sets off a retractable 316 heavy walled 316 ss deck fixed bow pole that extends Gennaker tack about 3' forward of the genoa tack.  

Also has a snuffer arrangement.  yacht went really well with this sail. Held it for 5 odd hrs - averaged 7 knots in 12 knots of wind and maxed out at 8.3 knots when the wind hit 20 - 17 knots for a time sailing with varying apparent wind.

Swell was beam to so no surfing and the yacht felt it could go faster but we just took it easy and were not pushing her! Held this sail easily when wind went to 50 apparent.

 
Also have a furling staysail- 10 oz 105% set on the inner forestay. Very flat sail and will be used as a heavy weather sail as well as for close hauled  work. Have not done any close hauled sailing as we are having a late start to winter and winds have been very light since I have gotten the yacht home last week.
Will keep you informed and will send you some photos . Have only some on boat photos and am awaiting some more to be emailed.  Komeova is great and I could not be happier!!  Great design!
 

Thanks for your assistance!!! Kind regards,  Ray Crake
