Australia

If anyone is coming to Australia give me a bell with your cruising questions and I'll do my best to get the info for you. We spent four years sailing here after crossing the pasific. We have just bought a house and are temporarily off the boat and in Sydney. God I miss my boat. I may have to go down there tomarrow and give her a rub.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi she is a round bildge steel 37. Built in hamberg germany, ( carl feltz) he use to build u-boats in the war. No jokes about going under water I have heard them all. We are now looking for the next Orion, may even look at some cats this time.

Oyster Bay, up Cooks River ? Took me a while to find it. I was hunting around Port Hacking. There is a newcomer 37'ish steel sloop near us (Balmain) and I was wondering.

No its not ours but balmain is a good spot to live. I can just feel the easy trip into town in the morning. You are a lucky devil. We Moored at the spit bridge because we lived in mosman before coming down here. Our yacht has sold and we are waiting to buy now; Holding off to see what the market looks like in the nest term. I have had my eye on a 12m cat but in the end we may just go with a sundeer.

Much the same though we still have the old girl. Don't need to sell her until we buy another. Well, unless things turn really ugly, which of course they could. I'm holding off for the time being, hoping to see a downturn in the market. We shall see. Sundeer ? Whoa ! Too much boat for me and the Ms.
