I am Currently in Port Denison, Western Australia Where I grounded during a large storm and navigating to this new port at night. The locals have been awsome, special thanks to John Fitz harding, who organised volanteers to save my vessel whilst i wa in hospita. Also a big thanks to The Fisheries Department who rescued me. Nice to know putting a Mayday call out works. Shall read some storys and share some of my funnyest moments with you all. PS Single male looking for Lady to share my dream. just in case.lol.

Re: Hello to all from the piroteofthewest

Well boatman, the truth as we know it is that under great amounts of drugs all nurses are gorgeous.lol. I have to say that in case I have to go back. I must admit they were very kind to me, now have cardboard bottles to pee in, recycling has gone crazy. Thanks for the welcome.lol.

Re: Hello to all from the piroteofthewest

thank you to all for that very nice welcome. I shall indead share the whole story with you all. I am still embarrassed . It all looks so simple during daylight hours. I am about to be towed to Geraldton some 40nm North wher the boat can be lifted out and repaired. Happy sailing cheers Grant.
