Not all first boats bring disaster, so chin up and enjoy. What is (or will be) her name? Ann and I will keep an eye out for you if you get as far south as the Sydney area. You might keep us all posted as to your progress (and adventures, too).

Cheers,

Jim

Jim,

Have been looking at a plan for the NSW leg. Would really like to stop at Port Mac. As Im not familar with the entrance, bridge times and navigating the lake I am still doing the research.

I haven't "advertised" the name as yet. We are still going through registration process and as we are not on the boat yet we are waiting until we get going.

I can PM you with details and when we are closer I can see if you are still there. would be more than happy to shout you and Ann a drink.

Where are you moored currently?

Scott

Yaringa, wet berth, walk 150 yards, car park free, Both take me an hour to get too,
Yaringa is about 7 miles north of the Hastings Marina.
Plus Cats are hard to park in Melbourne, They just wont take cats,
You wont have a problem with yours,

Permanent Mooring at Docklands, $15,000-00 P/Year so I have been told, Ouch,
I think Peir 31 is very exy too.

Brian,

I'm in Sandringham area. Sandy YC has 2 year wait for berth.

We really want to be in the Bay so we can use through the week.

I can see that we wont be as keen to drive to Hastings through out the week. I am not sure of the "Live aboard rules" in Western Port. But it would be easier either wy in PP Bay.

We are not discounting Hastings. What is Max draft at Yaringa?

Scott
