Hello From Brisbane

Hi Everyone,
After many visits to CF and now that time permits, I have finally joined as a member and plan to become involved in the yachting community and assist where possible. After 136 yacht deliveries, mainly in Australia and SE Asia, I have dropped the pick and winding down for retirement. I am very happy to assist with advice on routes, passage planning and electronics.
Regards MB.

Re: Hello From Brisbane

Thanks for the greetings everyone. You know the world has gone bad when I just stepped off a 400 mile delivery on a 29 foot yacht. She was a great little boat, good trip but I am 6 ft 3 inches, was a tad hard to find a long berth.
Happy Sailing. Regards MB.

Welcome & Congratulations on winding down toward retirement! After all those deliveries I bet it's so nice to sleep in your own bed every night. Glad to have you aboard CF. I found it a great bunch of people with tons of knowledge they are happy to share. Sounds like you're in a great place to enjoy retirement. Enjoy it!
