Good plan but go all the way sell every thing and live aboard that's what we did and love it coming up to three years soon.

Re: Gday all

G'day Jimmy,

Welcome to CF, and have a good time escaping from the Lake. It is a fun place to daysail, but the real world begins on the other side of the Swansea bridge!

Keep us informed about your progress, and perhaps our wakes will cross on our next trip North.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Gday all

Hi Mate. I am just south of you on the sunny Central Coast. Best lake in NSW you have up there. Depending what side of the lake youre on, it may be worth dropping in to the local yacht club and seeing if they need anycrew- to get your skills up.Toronto, Manering Park, sunshine, wangi are all freindly clubs on The west, then of course Lake Mac Yc at Belmont.
