Annie 30

The Annie 30 just called Annie, is an American sailboat, designed by Chuck Paine as an offshore cruiser and first built in 1980. The Annie design was developed into the Annie 2 by Paine and offered as plans for custom building or amateur construction; the design was built by Morris Yachts in Bass Harbor, United States. The company built 16 examples of the design, starting in 1980; the Annie is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a spooned raked stem, a sloped transom, a transom-hung and keel-mounted rudder controlled by a tiller and a fixed long keel, with the forefoot cutaway, it displaces 11,027 lb. The boat has a draft of 4.50 ft with the standard keel fitted. The boat is fitted with a Westerbeke two-cylinder diesel engine for maneuvering; the fuel tank holds 18 U. S. gallons and the fresh water tank has a capacity of 37 U. S. gallons. The cabin has two design interior versions. One has a forward head, just aft of the "V"-berth, while the other has an aft head, in place of the chart table and a dresser in the forward cabin.

The forward cabin has a privacy curtain. The galley is located aft, on the starboard side, just ahead of the companionway stairs and has an optional two-burner stove. A shower is optional and uses freshwater engine cooling to heat the water. Ventilation is via nine opening ports; the genoa has tracks and the mainsheet traveler is mounted aft of the cockpit. In a review Richard Sherwood described the design, "Annie is a heavy-displacement boat, but she has a tall rig and much greater sail area in the jib than older boats. In addition, freeboard is low, the bow is sharp, the keel is quite narrow; the forefoot is cut away. With the long keel and the heavy displacement, Annie should track well; the tall rig will assist in light air."

Southern Cross (automobile)

The Southern Cross was an Australian automobile produced between 1931 and 1935. Built by the Marks Motor Construction Company it was intended to retail for under 300 pounds. Volume production of the "Airline" Sedan was planned for 1935 but the marque died with the Chairman, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. Kingsford- Smith was in the process of raising additional capital at the time of his disappearance over the Bay of Bengal; the first experimental Southern Cross was an open tourer with a body constructed by the Beale Piano works. Several enclosed sedans were built for development purposes; the car featured a monocoque chassis and body along similar lines to the Marks-Moir car, in development since 1922. It was crafted from thin sheets of Queensland pine and walnut glued under pressure with aircraft casein glue; this "plywood" was moulded into shape during the curing process. Doors mounted back into place with metal hinges. Assemblies such as engine and suspension were mounted on steel frames bolted to the body.

The engine, a locally produced flat-four of 2340cc developed 60 bhp at 3200 rpm. It was designed by William Foulis who had designed and built the two cylinder motor of the 1917 "Roo" car; the car rode a 120inch wheelbase. The combination of a small engine and light weight provided good performance and economy for the times. Two of the cars built used an early form of automatic transmission developed in Australia; this was described as a frictionless system of centrifugal control in which the torque was developed by balanced weights brought into action by planetary gears without need of a clutch or gear lever. Suspension was provided through thin semi-elliptic leaf springs; each alternate spring was interlocked. This system, combined with the flexibility afforded by chasis-less construction, enabled the vehicle to be built without shock absorbers; the company put a proposal to the Federal Government to lease machinery and buildings at the Lithgow Small Arms Factory to build mechanical components on a large scale.

Production records are unclear but more than four and fewer than 10 Southern Cross cars were built. The open Tourer, christened by Lady Kingsford Smith at Mascot Aerodrome in 1933, was sold to a resident of Parramatta, NSW, in 1936, it was destroyed in a fire during the 1970s. No Southern Cross cars survive. Marks-Moir car
