To answer your questions.
1)SkipprJohn.. Yes I'm already a sailor - we lived aboard a Steel
Roberts 36 in Cairns and cruised the reef on days off, I used to work in New Guinea in those days.
2)Ex-Calif...No I dont work on the wells (sadly, otherwise I'd be retired by now!).. I fly a private jet for some rich dudes. I used to work in Singapore
(Seletar) and had many a pleasant afternoon at Changi killing "Tigers".
I'm now looking for a 43+ ft Shallow draft Aluminum
boat.. any ideas? (the French ones look great)
