    I recall that someone converted one of the last IMS maxis a decade or so ago into a pilot house motor yacht. I think it was one of the S&S boats, but you could buy this hull for $10k and spend $2 million to get a $500,000 boat?

    How does AS feel about a member bullying another member?

    Could they not all just meet behind the bike sheds after school?


    ”You’re a cunt!”


    ”No, YOU’RE a cunt!”

    Holy fuck! I know Mark well and had no idea this was happening. 

    I might dial back on my Hitler video productions!

    News Just In:

    Matt Allen has partitioned AS to permanently BAN Mark Hipgrave due to him "speaking out" regarding the legal proceedings.

    He was especially ticked off by Hugo Van Krestschmar's comments of support on the GoFundMe page.

    It will be interested to see how this plays out especially considering money talks.

    It’s played.... check the front page.

    We are just a couple of posts in... and already we have the “rudder” argument and the famous “hanging” picture. Now all we need is “deposit or STFU” and “what’s it rate”. It is amazing, after all of these years, the strong reactions to this boat. 

    I dunno about them windows!

    Even funnier when you find out that the offending boat had paid sailors on board....PHS?? FFS!!!

    Didn’t Envy Scooters have this same problem in the 2019 Hobart race?


    Port/Starboard with paid sailors on board?

    You up to date yet?

    Maybe ring your Commodore and ask for an update.

    Being a few early morning meetings of the directors of the New Beach Road Barbacue club last week I hear.

    I doubt the Commodore would take my call?


    Given that I didn’t get the email sent to all members last Thursday with the board’s position on two handed racing, clearly I’m on the out? Then again... what would be new?


    Unless... the meetings were about me. Again.

  7. 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 than me puked their hearts out. And free floating in a bunk as the boat falls for what seems like forever off another mammoth wave, wondering (even praying) if this bang will be the last bang. Fuck going on deck.


    The sea state was too heinous for us to enter Merimbula or Eden, so we just kept going north. We ended up in Ulladulla at 10pm and I was on a 6am bus out of there. I just... could not comprehend that in the sport I loved we’d lost boats and people I knew. It was cowardly, but fuck... when I got home I burst into tears in front of my brand new girlfriend. I still consider myself lucky as one of our other mates who was also in the race ended up taking his own life.

    C'mon Jas,  you're now older than the mutton you used to get around with was.

    I reckon it's your number getting blocked these days!

    Probably! It’s amazing how far you get with the phrase “A beautiful young lady like you deserves better than him.”

    She was dinner and yes I had to pay first. 

    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...

    Shhhh. He is on a roll. It seems from Jacks ever increasing tally, the Morrison government is kidnapping Australians and secretly flying them overseas to wait in line to come back. If this goes on for another year there will be 25 million Aussies stranded at Heathrow and only 40 000 living here. I have no idea why the PM would do this, but he did light all those bush fires this time last year. 

    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!!!

    The Inglis 47 Dolce (ex Vendetta) is back up for sale for an eye watering $275k

    I think it was in the low $100's when it was last listed








    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...
