We are now a few days out from moving aboard.
We will be starting in Sydney
Harbour/Parramatta River until we get comfortable and hopefully in a few weeks slowly starting to make our way North.
In the meantime, while I've lived and worked in Sydney
for a million years, I've always "commuted" to the boat - i.e. dinghy
on trailer, to boat ramp
, launch, etc.. then come back to boat ramp
I've never had to:
a. Leave the dinghy
alone while going somewhere: where do you leave your dinghy in Sydney - surely a new RIB
will get stolen in 15 minutes?
b. Access the shore/land and keep my feet relatively clean (I mention this as for example - Hen and Chicken Bay is totally MUD and I can't imagine wading 50m at low tide through sticky MUD dragging the dinghy.. then going shopping
etc without somehow requiring a SERIOUS clean up!)
We will be mobile, and will be in various anchorages
depending on the wind
direction etc - so a list of various access points with somewhere to tie up the dinghy and not get too dirty going ashore would be greatly appreciated.
At the moment, there are a LOT of international cruisers in the harbour I see flying courtesy flags
- how are you all getting ashore?
Thank you very much in advance!
