Re: Cruiser Recommendations

For a model, I'd pick Keeley. She seems to have good flotation devices.

Re: Cruiser Recommendations

G'day, mate. Mason 53, no need to look any further. When do you want to come down and go for a sail? Cheers.

Thanks much.
Welcome to Cruisers Forum! This is a soft landing compared to what youíd experience at something like Sailing Anarchy so donít let anything so far discourage you. There are some very experienced people on this forum, there are also many who have nothing much to contribute. Choose your responses accordingly and try and ignore politics.

My favorite no-holds-bared would be something like this this one.

My plans and budget are to build something inspired by this one.

Choose wisely grasshopper....

I got a feeling they're very aware of how the internet works.
