Owners comments: Monkey Business has a long history campaigning under the ASBA banner and we found her in 2020 under a tarp on the hardstand at RANSA. The boat was in need of a birthday when we bought it and that is certainly what we have given it. My father and I stripped her down, repaired and resprayed her back to her teenage years. Thanks to a bunch of new sails and some mates from the 16's we have her chomping at the top end of the fleet. We are ecstatic with our recent Nationals results, 3rd overall equal with Tickety Boo (another Shaw 650). We are looking forward to sailing Monkey in between out 16’s commitments.
