"Having said that it might be a small buyer pool prepared to sail a 30 ft boat to Australia. Just saying."
I don't want to rain on your parade, but this is a boat with a spade rudder
, she is over 30 yrs. old, and she has only 20 gallons water
capacity. The passage
to the Marquesas
is a long one. We use about 1/2 gallon per day fresh water
where it's hot and you need to replenish bodily fluids. Honestly, though it's a lovely dream, I think it's unlikely she's going to Australia, and at a beam of 10 ft., she won't fit in a container. There are plenty of used boats in Australia, albeit not of Canadian manufacture.
I wish you luck with your project
, because I know all too well how much you wish your boat a "happy" further existence.
