Following are photos of the R53 built by Martin and Rhonda of Darwin, Australia. Hoping to launch next year, (2000) the couple's first cruise is planned to be back to Martins home in Canada. It is obvious from the first photo, from the care with which the strongback had been made, that this will turn out to be a magnificent vessel.
