Ha, Hi new Jim, welcome, I am in kettering as well, might even find the time to get down to the boat during the week. I have sold "Snow Petrel", but if you see me on my new boat "Sunburst" say Hi.

Old Jim, It would be great to catch up and have a yarn with you sometime, I will look out for you down in kettering.

Cheers

Ben

Re: Hello from Tasmania

Welcome to the forum.

My wife is from Tasmania, Sheffield I think...
I'm supposed to fill out the paperwork for Aussie citizenship, I'm quite the procrastinator. I'd like to sail there someday, meet the family, inherit the farm.

Re: Hello from Tasmania

I love Tas, the cherry fruit stands are wonderful, spent some time down in Dover. Almost moved there.

Geeze Jacko,

Down here in Tassie we've had two rainy days since Christmas and generally excellent weather, warmish and fairly sunny. Qld on the othere hand has been inundated repeatedly, floods everywhere... crikeys, mate, Go South!

(But as the sun heads north, so will we!)

Cheers,

(Old) Jim

lucky you. looking forward to getting back that way again sometime. curious to see what anchors you get dug in up there.

Had a great trip from adelaide. except for a few days with no wind and no engine. We went backwards a few times! Anyway boat is safely in kettering now. And I have time to get a new engine. Fair winds

Going to Tassie myself over Easter.

I live in Melb but my 28 foot fixer-upper is quietly rusting away in Devonport.

Heading over to give her some TLC, or a respectful send-off, depending on what I find...

Re: Hello from Tasmania

Olaf, you were in Simmons Bay! Did you notice the power lines towards the north? My mooring is in that direction and you are welcome to use it. It has a pink buoy with a small green ball. We owned the property up from the stone jetty. Take a look at http://pratkins.webs.com/sailinginpeterrobyn

Hello Peter. I Hope you are well. I remember you carening your boat up the creek!

I think the link to your website might be broken. Which is a shame because I'd like to see what you're up to.

If you look at my ramblings and look for the post on sextants you might see your old frieberger. I bought it off Dunagh. All the Best

Thanks for that Peter, I already have a few options for moorings in the bay.

Ben, it looks as though it is necessary to hi-lite the website address and paste into your browser. I did that and it came up! Will wrirte again later. Peter http://pratkins.webs.com/sailinginpeterrobyn

Re: Hello from Tasmania

To Ben-Snowpetrel1
Since I am not yet a 'trusted member', being new to the forum, I will send this message here.
Hi Ben,
Re website: Our Family - Shenandoah

You will notice on the website and Forum, that I am trying to trace the original RESTIVE, referred to in Hiscock's-Cruising Under Sail, of which Peter Robyn is at least a "copy".. I have tracked down a sister-ship in the UK and there are now photos of her on my website.
A few years ago I met in Kettering, a guy named Mike, who lived aboard his yacht with his wife who worked for Greening Tasmania/Australia (she came to us to assist in getting rid of Gorse at Bruny). He apparently monitors yachts in any part of the world doing ocean crossings and they report in to him on a daily basis. He tracks them etc.
Did you ever meet him or do you know his name, email address or website? I seem to remember that they were interested in buying property in Cygnet.
It was he who seemed to remember being in contact with Restive who at that time was in the vicinity of South Africa, en-route to Nth. America. I would be interested in your reply.
Regards, Peter
