pirate Greetings from Oz

Hi All, I'm Ian from NSW Australia. This is a great site for finding out best cruising grounds and sights to see. My yacht is undergoing a minor refit at the moment to make it more user friendly and reliable for extended cruising. Hope to cross paths with some of you in the future.

Hi Ian

You don't give a location other than NSW (AUS). I am currently in Pittwater as we are about to install a new engine. We have lots of cruising miles under our belts (approx 80,000) and know the east coast of Aus really well but also many Pacific cruising grounds from Aus to Alaska. Any assistance required just get in touch.

Cheers Sapient Sue

Re: Greetings from Oz

Also new to the forum. Lots of good stuff here. Tell us about the refit. I get good ideas from what others are doing.
