Aloha Gaffer,
Welcome aboard! I'd like to see a photo of your boat. I learned to sail on old gaff rigged sloops many years ago.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Greetings,
Thank you for the welcome SkiprJohn
I will send you a photo as soon as I get my head around the workings of how to within the forum. Never joined one before. But as winter would have it, its too cold and wet to work on the boat with any pleasure

Hello Gaffer - I'm sure you will find some interesting (and occasionally useful!) threads here. Any cruising plans?

Cooper thank you , I can almost feel that heat and would swap our rain for some of Australia's heat. I can't weld nor grind outside because its too wet.
