Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)

Chall .... We discussed the trailor sailor option in the old thread. Bent's problem is that he has nowhere to park the boat/trailer. Other than that I thought it made a bit of sense. With limited space on board pulling up to the beach extends the availabe space and the kids could always pitch a tent. I wouldn't be all that worried about sailing the NSW coast in a TS cos other than down to Broken Bay or up to Port Stephens Bent doesn't plan taking this boat further afield. If its not feasible however then thats that.

Sloop .... yep to the dollars. unfortunately it doesn't make sense to ship a smaller boat to Oz, the freight coats make it prohibitive. Of course sailing home is emminently doable provided the boat is sea(ocean)worthy.
