Dragon Lady; I've been lurking with interest on this thread as I'm an Aussie in Europe
looking for my next boat, which will be a cat, and I will eventually do the Aus import
I just had a look at the TPI 42 and I reckon you have made an excellent choice. It looks like a real sailing boat, by all reports has good seakeeping qualities, should be well built, and you have the long-term value advantage of having a name attached that has world-wide instant recognition.
I wish you the best of luck with the whole purchase/repatriation/import process and please please keep posting
. I am very interested to hear of your progress.
Go you good thing! Someone's gotta make the jump.
Regards from the Groover
