I have read several OK guides, will have a look in the bookcase over the weekend and also refresh my memory of Cape York. Spent a couple of years there but that was the late 70's / early 80's. Will advise!

Wotname, I shall be in your neighbourhood over Christmas - going out to Narembeen to see the rellies. Though I may be suffering thermal shock - forecast snow here next week.

OK, I think beer is recommended for the thermal shock but I am sure the rellies have that in hand. Narembeen is quite a contrast !!!
If you get a chance, I like to hear about Norway, perhaps while administrating additional treatment. Sadly only ever spent about a week there (mid 70's) .
I will PM some contact details if you are interested, if not, that's also OK .

If possible, would be delighted to meet. Will be travelling with son - he has own boat though at the moment he is a petrol head with Chris Craft + 5.0 litre V8 but nearly have him converted back to the correct way .

Only problem is I have no idea of what /when, but if a quick phone and then arrive is good???

Where do you keep boat?
