    The New Hand Emerges



    The new Pacific 52' Invisible Hand has emerged from the shed in at the Cooksons Boatyard in
    Auckland New Zealand and is ready for hardware and rigging installation. The boat is scheduled
    for splashing and sea trials after the 1st of the year before being shipped stateside sometime in February!

    Frank Slootman's Pacific 52' has been trimmed out at Cookson's Boatyard in Auckland
    with the majority of the hardware installed. She is now getting the mast and running rigging installed
    and should be in the water later this week. She will undergo some sea trials and adjustments before
    being loaded on a container ship for delivery to the Bay Area!

    The new Pacific 52' Invisible Hand does some sea trials in New Zealand before packing
    up and getting shipped to San Francisco.
