New from Tasmania AUST

Weekend and holiday cruising family. Sail a Duncanson 35, 1971. Two children, girls, 7 & 4 yo. We purchased our boat two years ago and have never looked back. Children beg us to go to the boat at every op. Swimming, rowing, fishing and beachcombing. All the good things. Have met some great people and enjoy gaining more knowledge from sites like this. Bigger boat, live aboard and home school all agreed in the near future.

Maggie,
Not a Valiant, a Tayana 42.

Welcome Maggie. Interesting boat, cute kids. Nice cruising grounds, too! We have a fair number of other members from your hemisphere as well.

In case he misses your note, I'll mention that TEShannon's boat is a Tayana Vancouver 42. The actual boat is much larger than the photo you see.

Oops, I see he replied....

Maggie,
Never an insult to be compared to a Valiant! Actually Maggie this is a site where very few people get insulted so don't worry about that with anything you say. Just fire away. There's a lot of good humor here also and so most of us are thick skinned because of that. You get the occasional nitwit but they're easily identified and ignored. Don't hesitate to ask questions, you'll be amazed at the number of informed responses you'll get.
