This sharpie was launched at Lake Wyvenhoe, Queensland, Australia. It was built by John Hockings over six months, and was inspired by Bill Schwicker's Egret and his 3 fathom sharpie. Hockings' search for drawings for a canoe-sterned 20' sharpie in the style of Schwicker's boats led to Ross Lillistone who drew the beautiful lines for him. The boat will live in the Great Sandy Straits, a boating haven adjacent to the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

Richard Goy of Brothers' Boatworks writes, "The boat is constructed of marine plywood and coated with fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin. It is powered by a 70 lb. thrust-modified Minn-Kota electric motor mounted under the rear deck. The mahogany seats and the ribbon stripe decks are coated with clear epoxy and numerous coats of spar varnish. This flat-bottomed boat was built primarily with epoxy adhesives.
