Hello to you all.
My wife and I have been enjoying Sailnet for a while now, and thank everyone for their contributions to an informative and entertaining site.
As the title suggests we are starting to get excited as our efforts of the last few months come to fruition and we will soon become the proud new owners of "TRANSIT" a 40 foot steel Atkinson (Aust) design cutter.
"Transit" has been in the family, owned by my dad and s/mum, for about 10 years, and we keenly looking forward to getting to know her and making our home town of Gladstone in Central Queensland, her home port.
I will be flying south next week to crew/sail her north the 320 nautical miles up the Australian-Queensland coast.
We will be sure to share our stories/delights/fears/experiences/better pics, as they happen.
