Hello Everyone

Hi All,
2 years ago we packed up our house (in Ballarat, Australia) and rented it out to go cruising "until the money runs out". Our boat 'Skylark2' is a cold molded 34' sloop designed by Joe Adams and based at Geelong. So far we have cruised Tasmania including the wild and beautiful west coast, then up the east coast of the Australian mainland to Brisbane. Currently in Noumea, New Caledonia waiting on gearbox repairs before heading to Vanuatu.

Re: Hello Everyone

Hello Jumbalara,

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you are "living the dream". Hopefully your gearbox problems don't drain the bank account too much.

What gearbox do you have? How's the parts supply in Noumea?

Re: Hello Everyone

Hi Kokanee,
The cost will be bad enough. The big issue for us is that this is the 4th time the gearbox has failed. Desperate to find a cause so we can trust it in future. I am about to start a thread in the mechanical section to see if anyone has had similar issues.
