Rough, Tough 'n Satisfying

Our blog has been updated.
A bit of heavy weather, but we had to be in Tasmania so off we go.
The Banyandah, veteran of hundreds of thousands of sea miles faired better than her crew who had to concentrate on safety first. Otherwise a disaster would have occurred in those seas.

That's usually the case, boats can handle more then the crew.
Hope your camera didn't get wet. I had one that seized up in 3 months.

Re: Rough, Tough 'n Satisfying

Good on you Banyandah, Yup going to Tassie can get that way! Needless to say us Cheoy Lee pilot house sailors would be dry but possibly still thrown about the pilot house!

Hi, banyandah,

Look for us, if'n y'all feel like it, either in Sandy Bay (S'ly winds) or Kangaroo Bay (N'ly).

This looks to me like it's looking to the stern. The dodger is forward.

LOL,- It seems obvious once you point that out. I should have asked, instead of, "Where is the dodger?" .... "Where is the mast?"!

Some of that salt spray must have got in my eyes! Thanks!

I noticed it was the stern, but that just makes the pic. all the more interesting.

Re: Rough, Tough 'n Satisfying

Great pic! And man you have a lovely boat too.

Sometimes think dodgers should be elsewhere for those rough downwind passages ... ;-)
