G'Day from WA

Hi from UglyDave. my friends just call me ugly
Recently purchased a Swarbrick S80.
So far I have taken the boat out three times Each time I learn something new (many things). Dont reverse into the sea wall. Open the fuel tank vent valve. Have mooring lines ready before trying to moor.
I'm sure I will have many stories for your amusement soon.

Good to see another Aussie. There are few of us amongst all these Yanks.

Welcom Ugly,
Here's a couple more for you, have a float or floating line if you tow a dinghy, or a face mask and a kayak drysuit available if you don't. Have fenders out before you hit the dock and practice reefing before sailing into heavy gusting winds!
Have fun! We are!
Juli and Bill
