The family gin palace is heading to the Whitsunday's for Easter, with the whole tribe onboard including 2 kids. The cat is not great at punching into waves, and the various wives on board find it quite unpleasant.
To make the whole deal easier, we are looking at finding a mooring to base ourselves on for the 5 days we will be up there. We will also head to a marina to top up with water halfway through. Do any of you have suggestions for a relatively central, all weather mooring that would suit a cat, and has plenty of places to visit even if breeze is on?
Check the fine print on your insurance, Club Marine may not cover you if anchored at Airlie or Shute.
I would love to see these two twelves rescued but you're looking at close to $1MM each to get them both sailing again. A more modest goal of getting them back to Australia would be worth putting together in a GoFundMe program.
Cheaper to build new in WA using the original plans and charter out as defender/challenger mock races.
Get the TAFEs and apprenticeship programs involved.
On a serious note how many would really be interested (in terms of hands in their own pockets) in saving two losing boats, especially in the current economy?
