Brief History: Source Conways Fighting Ships
Tenders for the two prototype glass-reinforced plastic (GRP)catamaran minehunters were sought in 1981 and orders finally placed in 1983 with Carrington Slipway, Cairns. It had hoped that 4 more vessels (Westernport, Discovery, Esperance, Melville) would be ordered after trials and evaluation. In the event the hull proved to be too small for coastal and severe problems were encountered with the sonar and the project was stopped.
In 1991 Thomson Sintra leased it Ibis V-sonar system for trials in the sister vessel HMAS SHOALWATER (M81) and in early 1992 Atlas Electronik installed their new DSQS-11M in HMAS RUSHCUTTER for competitive trials. The German sonar passed acceptance and was retrofitted in HMAS SHOALWATER
