Boring old fart? Nay, wise and kindly old fart!

btw and off thread ... Bonaparte Archipelago ... looks like a great place to explore if one were in the neighborhood, yes? no? ... in me new leaky boat of course!!!!
I'm taking that to mean ...nah...no one gets away with calling me wise and kindly....

The whole area on the north West coast of Oz is a wonderland. I've only seen a little bit of it when sailing up north a few years back but it's high on my list when we finally get out of this bloody city. Negatives are big crocs and even bigger sharks, some truely staggering tides (up to 10 metres) and cyclones. Parts of this area was hit yesterday by a womper, number of deaths much destruction. Long way to travel as well. Would be about the same as sailing from Boston to San Francisco via Panama I'd reckon and you are on your own when you get there.
Even today the area is almost deserted. First Europeans to arrive here were the (oh gawd) Portuguese and Dutch. That's arrive as in crash bang holy shite whats this sinking feeling, who put that damn continent there....They tended not to stay for long unless it was down among the dead men.

Thanks tdw ... sounds like paradise ... never did care for crowds or the well traveled path ... just waiting for the wife to retire and we'll be gone and Kimberly is on our list ...

And the wilderness took my breath away,
Under a sun that never falters.
A man has to find his way,
Where no one ever goes.

No word yet...If he has not pulled in somewhere already he is looking at 15-25 knots and seas building from 3 to 8 feet over the next couple of days.

25 knots and seas of 8 feet, provided they're not too close together isn't too bad... But, I don't think Ryan will be happy about it.

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.

No, He will just open another beer. I don't think he will make his time schedule.

Whose quote ?

Ref Kimberley - have a look at the website of Boat Books Australia. They have a couple of good cruising guides for Western Australia and the Kinmberley Coast. Worth having if only for dreaming away the nights.

Timing in that area is all important. You need to ensure that you are not there during cyclone season and arrival at any destination must be calculated as much by the tides as anything else.

I'm presuming you are coming from the US heading west ?? If you are looking for the road less travelled then come in via the Louisiades across to Thursday Island , then across the Gulf of Carpentaria to Gove then to Darwin and then to the Kimberley. Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory but population is all of about 120,000 so it's not all that crowded. Tidal surge through the Torres strait also bears watching as the Arafura Sea is some 18 inches lower than the Tasman.
