Hello from Tasmania

Hello everyone.

I have just registered for these forums. I am in the process of purchasing my first boat; what an education it is turning out to be! I can see why people say a boat is just a hole in the water that you pour money into!

Anyway, this looks like a great site for me to pester you all with my dumb questions...provided I don't sink and drown during my delivery trip

Cheers

Weyalan

Welcome Weyalan. Nah it's not just boats mate. It doesn't matter what recreation you have, you pour money into them all.

There is no such thing as a dumb question or an easy one - just a question for which your experience alows you to make an answer (or not).

I just sailed down from Queensland (Mooloolaba) to Tasmania, and it was noticeably less warm in the latter locale.

The black hole

I have a buddy in Hobart who had run a franchised men's wear store, but his wife is running it now. I think he is more into retiring and tasting new beers.

When I pulled up to my mooring in my new slip in Horseshoe Bay in BC with my new "used" boat, I mumbled something to the older couple on their power boat next to me about how boats were just dark holes to throw money at. The Mrs. of the boat who must be in here mid 70's looked at me and said - "young man what is important is that it is your black hole!"
