I have just joined this forum and am here to introduce myself
Name is "Geedee".... am 78yrs young...
I sail a Hartley "Queenslander" "Gandalf" out of the NZ southern port of Bluff and a member
of the Green Point yacht Club.
Gandalf is a ferro
cement yacht, built in 1970 and is in wonderful order.
My main cruising area is Stewart Island across the notorious Foveaux Strait, also have cruised several times to the Fiordland Sounds in the SW corner of the South Island of NZ, always waiting for the right conditions before setting off.
My sea going ranges from days in merchant marine
, Commercial fishing
, skippering charter
boats,sailing dinghies, trailer boats , ocean sailing and "Gandalf"
I love boats of all shapes and sizes.
take care all and great sailing
