Hello from the Top End

Hi Everyone - John here from Darwin / Northern Territory Australia. I own a 17.5m (57') forward cockpit cruising catamaran. World Cruise planned with the World ARC leaving Australia in September 2014. Still things to do to the boat. Always found when viewing the forum interesting and informative with lots of helpful sometimes opposing views. Looking forward to been part of the forum.

Re: Hello from the Top End

Welcome to the home of opposing views! But, as long as no one gets TOO excited, they make for good thinking and choosing your own steadfast opinion!
I have many steadfast opinions..... but they are often 180 degrees from my own a few years ago! Life has taught me that at least. of course.... just my opinion....

Hello CaptainJSW

We may see you later this year in Darwin. Love to see a photo of your Cat.
If you're going west or west, there are heaps of good photos from our Aussie Circumnavigation 2007-09 on our website.
Cheers, from Tasmania

Re: Hello from the Top End

Hello everyone - Yes I should have posted more information on the boat
Check this link Johns Site Home Page

There is information there on the building of the boat in Mandurah, close to Perth in WA Australia and details of the trip from Perth to Darwin

Safe and Happy sailing
