  1. Sydney to Hobart 1998 - my second Hobart at age 19 on an alloy boat that was nearly as old as I was. Everywhere a winch or deck fitting was attached pissed in water. The skipper had decided that the authorities didn’t need another 12 souls in a life raft, so aimed us north(ish). We were 80 miles into the Strait, but 100 miles offshore. Waves so big they terrified me, and the scream of 80 knots of wind... I could not go on deck. Even if it was freezing down below, raining through the deck fittings and the walls ran with condensation while guys with 10,000 more sea miles tha
  2. Gotta love it. $135k list price and the ad has only two photos...
  3. Probably! It’s amazing how far you get with the phrase “A beautiful young lady like you deserves better than him.”
  4. I’m not surprised you had to pay up front. Lamb is bloody expensive! Mutton more so. What, with having to block her number afterwards, the antibiotics and the awkward trying to avoid her in the club during twilight season...
  5. So it has no deck or Interior, but if you tow it straight to the tip it comes with a brand new BBQ and an unused diesel motor? That’s half tempting...
  6. Because ScoMo is a cunt? He’s “stopped the boats” once before, so he’s clearly weaponised coronavirus, forcing a lock down of the northern beaches and all in a thinly veiled attempt to stop the Sydney Hobart race. He’s just a boat hating bastard! At least Turnbull sails!!!
  7. That’s because when chucked on the grill for 5 minutes a side with some Garlic and rosemary they’re fecking delicious!
  8. I know one, but he has one hell of a beard. As long as you’re happy though... I don’t judge.
  9. Well, that Bimini is a new addition and absolutely justifies the $175k price increase. Old mate must be smoking crack if he thinks the boat is worth that kind of coin. Or perhaps the drug habit is why he needs so much money...
  10. I hate that. You order something useful, like an airsoft rifle or a box of chips and they drop off a Cartier watch instead. Useless bastards.
  11. Yeah, I’ve been the young punk who got to drive for hours on end because I didn’t have existing shoulder injuries caused by tennis, home renovation or shagging the fat housewife next door. That time on the wheel was usual followed by “Right Junior. Fuck off up the front and get that kite down. And mind you turn the kettle on FIRST. Little prick that you are.” I’ve also been the bloke who has counseled that 3 broaches in ten minutes “is fucking stupid, and we should get the bag off now before Billy destroys another one... AND we’re only off bloody Botany. Bloody Billy.” Gre
  12. I have done a bit of round the cans racing, it bores the fuck out of me. At least when ocean racing you end up in a destination, instead of triangle, sausage, triangle, dodge the ferry and try to get the kite down quickly as the finish boat is hard up against the shore. So many buoy racers fail when it comes to around the ocean stuff. They don't know when to button off, blow up all the big chutes and end up sailing DDW with a jib, bitching about how uninspiring ocean racing is... The rest you can have.
