Hi from West Aus

I've pottered around sailnet before and finally have registered.

I have a 30' sloop, which I'm preparing for an Indian Ocean crossing next year. Watch that will mean a lot of questions.

Currently I'm installing a cockpit locker for my liferaft and working out how to install a solent stay. The liferaft locker is pretty straightforward and the solent stay seems that way but presents many questions, such as 'is a ball tang fitting 12" below the masthead strong enough?" Where can you get Highfield levers from?", "Can/should you rig a 'twistle yard' on a solent stay?".

As I say lots of questions so the forum will be hearing from me.

Regards
Tony

Tony,

assume you have heard about the Quindalup cruise down south between Xmas and New year. Plus there is a Abrolis cruise around March next year.

Further details here.

G'day, Mates
So, it's 1980. I've got a boat in Newport, Rhode Island, USA, and it's Cup season. I'm hanging around "Christies" which was the (un)official watering hole of the Auzzie boat, and I elbowed my way in, briefly, whilst Alan Bond (self-made guy who sponsored the boat) was holding court.
Some years later, I read where he's off to the hoosegow (jail, in case that dowsn't translate) for, what, income tax evasion? I get to thinking: Gee here's a guy who had it all, and phfffft..it's gone. Then I got to thinking more deeply, and I knocked myself in the head, silently saying: y'know, in a few months/years, he's going to be out, and a ziollionaire again...and I'm still going to be Joe Bag-a-donuts.
I think that's exactly what happened, at least the latter part.
