Introduction

Hi,

I'm planning a liveaboard lifestyle. I am researching sailing catamarans that would suit my needs. I will be sailing Single Handed and look forward to all the challenges that lay ahead.

Im looking to learn from others more experienced.

I plan to sail coastal Australia until my experience grows then will venture further out.

I look forward to the information gained from SailNet...a fantastic resource.

Welcome. I hope you enjoy hanging about the place. Not hat I know much about cats but any questions you have someone is sure to be able to help you out.

Always good to have another Australian onboard.

Cheers

Welcome aboard Ozidude.

Are you familiar with the Wharram designs??

Always happy to welcome another Aussie... almost as good as another Canadian!

Thanks for the Welcome guys. Im Sydney based but plan to relocate to Far North Queensland when I return from working in the Solomon Islands. This will probably be in mid 2011 or 2012.

I have been researching catamarans and its still a work in progress. I have heard of the Wharram designs but cant say that I am familiar with them. I will make it a point to check them out.
