  1. Assuming that all is in good working order, it is not ludicrous at all. Boatsales.com.au yachts between AU$35k and AU$40k.
  2. I was in Perth last week and stumbled across this gem. http://mansfieldmarine.com.au/mansfieldmarine/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/ericson-32-mark-ii-cruising-sloop/193205/
  3. Bob do you have any plans for the Passport 85? Sounds intriguing. Keep up the good work.
  4. Kim Stanley Robinson Mars trilogy is pretty good
  5. DDW (i think..) with the unstayed masts and the marvellous garage in his stern might have some ideas regarding the dinghy stowage? Kim certainly is lucky. Two lots of 60' boat porn is amazing.
  6. Very nice! Can't wait to see some of Rasper's images. Just wondering about how the bow of the tender sits with the engine box? To me it looks like a clash but I may be wrong. Also given Kim's enthusiasm for anchors, how will an anchor fit with the forward cockpit?
  7. The angry expat that is referred to above goes by the name of JBSF here. A personal message to him might get you somewhere. Photos of your classic planes would be fantastic (despite this being a sailing site..).
  8. Any relation to the space man?
  9. http://www.australianwoodenboatfestival.com.au/festival-program/boat-directory Capture.JPG Well done that man; I saw her only an hour ago in the festival and you've beaten me to it. I'll be down there tomorrow battling the crowds.

  11. I'm more impressed by the shed than the wedding cake.
  12. I have never really understood why people leave a small section of their jib unfurled rather than doing another turn or two to wrap the sheets at least once around the furled sail. On my old boat I used to take the sheets off, tie a sail tie around the sail at the clew and then hoist the sock which had a light line lead zig zag up the sock that tightened the whole sock up to prevent flogging.
  13. Those photos really illustrate the fact that Frankie is a work of art!
  14. Two local examples that have always had me scratching my head as to why ANYONE would want to buy them. https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-41.2215322,146.5497797,3a,60y,71.94h,80.75t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sZal2Yv6TVB9Mmb5wE_2v0w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-41.3198468,146.9860642,3a,60y,59.83h,81.03t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRSNxmJ3dOTzkMXjje20XQg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  15. I have a 50g and use it every day at work. Whilst I understand the attraction of rpn and hp, I don't really get the obsession with the old models.
