masalai is wandering aboard 'cno'

Having been on the water for almost 2 years - about time to update all on where and what...

CNO is a 39C from the design board of Bob Oram (a bloody genius), as I am achieving at 7+knots some 2 miles per litre of diesel running my kubota nani saildrives at 2500rpm which equates to around 10hp from the nominal 20 hp engines.

2 trips, one to South Percy and 7 days sheltering from a southerly before heading back to Brisbane to fit 3 blade fixed propellers.

At present I am up 'moon river' near Cairns anchored up and saving up my pension to continue up to Milne Bay later this year (I hope) - I have to find a crew as the near 4 day passage has me worried in this crossing to either Samarai Island or Alotau to clear customs (about 480 N miles).

My other option is to sell CNO and fly over to PNG and use banana boats to get around. I sort of like day sailing alone but long passages alone are not good.

Here is a couple of images of my boat, both at the anchorage at Cairns

Hi Ardi,
The build was mostly recorded at Boatdesign.net - - My little piece of peace - Page 6 - Boat Design Forums - - except for about 6 months when I had my own website.

"CNO" is for sale, lets start at Au$350K and work from there, I accept pure gold or AU$. She is an Australian registered ship.
