g'day...

Just bought myself a steel sloop and looking online for resources I came across this forum, I am new to sailing and need all the help I can get, luckily it seems I landed on my feet by joining here.

I have been gutting the inside this week and plan to woman proof it for devil woman, Plan at this stage is to sail from gold coast qld australia up to the whitsundays and beyond.

Excuse me if I ask some dumb questions.

Re: g'day...

Thanks Gary, I appreciate the heads up and will check it out.

Awesome St Anna! I will take you up on that, have the boat coming out tomorrow to paint top and bottom. I am not a fan of where the boat is moored currently and can't wait to head off, thankfully devil woman is keen to chuck in nursing for a bit and head up whenever so expect a bbq off the back in the near future

Re: g'day...

Its probably too late for me to say anything but it might be easier to hop over the side and clear it up whilst at anchor. Marinas are dirty places and may have a bull shark or 2... That might make you sort it quicker.

You summed up why i waited with the bull shark statement, not much scares me but great whites, bull sharks and crocs would top the list.

Sounds like you haven't come across any stingers then.. Just wait 'till you get further north.

The bigger ones'll leap out of the water and take your head off. Kinda like Drop Bears, but in reverse.
