Don't give up your Hartley so fast though. You just might enjoy owning the two different boats for a stretch especially if one of them has a very small 'honey-do' list.
Thanks, Caleb - the hull was splined by the PO late last year, but he didn't live long enough to enjoy it.

I'll take your advice about the two-boat thing and, given that she's a woody, we'll see what happens later in the year when I get broke and desperate. Should take, what, a month or two?!?

I'm sure there was a reason for that, but I've forgotten what it was!

Crazy? Crazy? CRAZY?!? I'll show you crazy: I've owned nothing but wooden boats. I wooden't have any other kind. I've had ten of them, I still have six. And I assure you, there's nothing wrong with me. (lalalalala)

If you have not been told "You bought an old SHOE!" let me be the first!

YOU BOUGHT AN OLD SHOE?!?!?!?!?!?!

It is a nice looking old shoe none the less. More cruisie than the hartley!

Enjoy her
Marty

Cameron,

Looks great and a fantastic piece of Aussie history.

Now think of all the Wooden Boat Regatta's you have to attend to allow the rest of us to appreciate history without the cost of maintaining it!!! :-)

Are you going to leave this in the pen or take the swing?

Nice to hear from someone down under also.

Being Melbourne based too I have some difficulty with the translation of various boats found on this site.

Cheers

Thanks, Ken. I'm amazed at how many people I know within the sailing fraternity that know something about this boat - either having raced against her or having known the PO.. it's scary really.

I'll leave it in the pen if the Club will let me - if you know anything about Port Phillip, you'll know the pen is probably worth more than the boat!!

If you're ever feeling inclined to help out, PM me. She's berthed at RYCV in Williamstown, but has been neglected for a bit and there is a lot of work to do!

Taking her out over the weekend C ? You should. I remember the first weekend we had Raven. Great long list of things to do but we just said bugger it and took off for a couple of days.

I know we should and the PO is expecting us to, but actually, we're not. Jen's family have other things planned for us on Sunday and Monday (a niece's birthday of all things), but the biggest hang-up is I have no idea how much fuel is left in the tank!

The bronze filler has a 1/4" x 3/4" slot in it and I know the key is on board someplace, but haven't managed to find it. I suspect it's fallen down the bottom of one of the galley lockers when I was tidying up the other day. The blasted cap is on real tight for some reason and, being bronze, any attempt to open the filler to shove the dipstick in (a nice carved and graduated wooden one!) and top up the tank with anything not an exact fit just chips the edges of the slot. Bugger..

The nicest day is supposed to be Sunday, but I'll try to convince J to go down there on Saturday even just to have lunch and sit on the boat for a bit..
