Re: Hello from downunder

Welcome to the forum from another aussie. It's mostly a friendly place here

Where will you be doing your sailing? I'm moving up to Sydney from Melbourne next month to enjoy some winter sailing out on the harbour.

Best of luck with the boat search.

The harbour is awsome in winter!! No traffic and gentle sou-easters. Love it

Re: Hello from downunder

Welcome aboard mate. I have a very nice, well kept Mason 53 on the other side of the Tasman if you want to have a close look. She's ready to take you where you want to go. Cheers

Re: Hello from downunder

Fair enough, mate. The better half and I have successfully handled our Mason 53 for over a decade now without any difficulties. Don't rule out looking at larger yachts, provided they are set up with the proper gear. All the best with the search. Cheers.
