Howdy all!

New member here from the antipodes. Live north of Sydney on the sunny central coast. Sailed off and on for the last 20 years and since the kids have got a bit older been chartering boats in the Whitsundays regularly. Enjoyed it so much that we bought our own boat last year (2000 Catalina 400MkII). Loving it and all the fiddling that goes with owning a sail boat.

Already had great benefit from the forum namely with potentially addressing the horrible prop walk the Catalina suffers from.
