The life of N3484 Total Perspective Vortex. Design: Paradox, designed by: Bim Daser in 2003
Previous boat names: Fatso, Dream Not Found.


Fatso was one of two boats built by Nigel Waller in 2003, to a new Bim Daser design now called the 'Paradox'.  They have distinctive full width decks from the shroud base back to the transom.

We just about managed to get them afloat in time for Looe Burton Week in 2003, and have since sailed her at Abersoch in '05 and Porthpean in '06.  The boat was lent to Steve Dunn for Weymouth in 2004.

N3484 Total Perspective Vortex  was the star of the National 12 stand at the 2024 RYA Dinghy Show. She was apparently runner up in the concours d'elegance. This is a photo of her on the stand during Dave Hollom's dinghy design talk. There is more about the show here
