Coops.
Thats just the thing Coops, I spent a few years searching and procrastinating over different fibreglass production boats... When this one came along, something clicked. I never thought I would end up with timber boat!
I would have called them crazy if someone would have told me last year that's what I would have ended up with.

Re: Ahoy from Tasmania, Australia

Hi Matilda. I know that boat. She is built like a tank. A few years ago I went on her and had a chat to the owner at the time. She will take you safety anywhere you want to go I expect.

Re: Ahoy from Tasmania, Australia

The good book say's" Tho shall not covet" but it sure is hard not to covet a fine looking vessel like this !! If ya don't ever get to the Carribe, we probly won't share an anchorage, but it would sure be nice addition to the beauty of any mooring or anchorage !! Have fun folks, our cruising wont get us to OZ again !! but we look forward to your future posts !!

Hi Matilda
Welcome to CF .
What a beautiful boat. There is something about a well kept timber boat (particularly in Huon Pine) that immediately tugs at your soul, isn't there!

Happy sailing.

Yeh, but it only said "dont covet thy neighbours wife. It says nothing about his boat :-D So I think you can covet till the sun burns out. I covet every time I am on yachtworld! Guilty of coverting and loving it!
