Welcome aboard, Rob

I'm somewhat restricted to the top end of Port Phillip now, but have fond memories of (a) the food at the restaurant, (b) going aground at Hastings in the Hartley and (c) winning a race or two on Westernport by chasing in and out of the tide..

You're with the Cruising Group I guess??

Good to have you here. I'll be down your way in January.

Welcome Rob. Nice to see a Top Hatter in here. Great little boats. Only 25' feet long but capable of anything you'd like to throw at them. I know of two circumnavigations in THs. Jamie Mitchell (who we had the pleasure of briefly sharing an anchorage with last year) is the latest but his parents also did it some years previously.

Cameron ... that mean you are talking the old girl cruising come New Year ? Should be quite a change from the Hartley. Luxury.

Yep. First week of January

Unfortunately the missus isn't up to a cruise like this, although we'll be heading up to Docklands together for the NYE fireworks..

One of the original crew (the only one left, actually) used to do a lot of bay cruising with the PO and is keen to go on one last cruise. He's moving to Flinders, so we picked Westernport and will have one of the other Classics for company (and safety). It'll be an interesting experience taking my own boat out of the heads for the first time, but I guess that's a topic for another thread.

..with apologies to Rob for the hijack.
