No one told me about the most vicious of creatures, cat owners!!! Marina moved cat next to me, wouldn't of been there 20 mins and he came over telling me that the water from my water pressure cleaner was wrecking his cat, also told me that cleaning the barnacles the marina missed under the straps is illegal. Work on boat stalled, memorised cat and might be first time i try a steve irwin manouvre with my bowsprit yet?

Oh, you have just begun to touch the surface of the twisted mentality that goes into a multihull owner.

watch out, there are a few about

Luckily the yard was understanding of my monohull plight and supplied netting, making in roads and so far no suprises. Made new back hatch out of lexan which is what the pop up security screens in banks are, will try post pics tomorrow.

Discovered mobile phones don't like being dropped into cans of antifoul! Have replacement finally and internet as i use phone as wireless hotspot.

Pulled the boat up at boatworks which was formerly goldcoast marine centre, they just purchased riviera boats and changed name, awesome crew working there and can't speak highly enough of them. Especially shane the yard manager.

Boat had no suprises, new bulletproof tinted windows make boat look awesome to what it was and thankfully was rope around prop and not more.

Missus come up for weekend, approves and letting me spend more to deck out which is relief. Stormy so sitting on mooring and relaxing. Life's so hard at times...

Ha! Put myself in the brown stuff and told her i would buy her a bigger, more comfortable boat, this one is nothing special but within budget to test the water so to speak. Should suffice to get to whitsundays and see if we don't kill each other?

Re: g'day...

So it's true about the gravity working in reverse in OZ, then. The boat looks gorgeous but I'm sure I'd never get used to having the keel above the mast.
