Ahrr.. 3 Aussies to one Kiwi, yeap I'd call that an even match

OK I'll give you Crown but how do you explain XXXX and I'm not going anywhere Bundy

Out of control, quite possible in Brizzy in 2 weeks. I'm a coming to pinch one of our boats back. 60ft of sexy steel, nice.

See Tim we are all mates even if you lot don't live on the mainland

"Sixty feet of sexy steel." ?? Yup.. Kiwi alright!!!

old saying about Queenslanders.. why do they call their beer XXXX??
answer.. because they can't spell BEER!

XXXX is why everyone started calling it piss. I drink my wifes homebrew or crownies.

But Tim.. no worries we don't pick on new guys.. even if they are mexicans!! (kidding of course)

Mate, which marina/club do you hail from if I may?

Cheers

Hey Bob, why can't a 60ft steel ketch be sexy?

Sure it does not fit the normal mold of 'sexyness' but boats can be people too you know (quote pinched from the great Philosopher Radar O'Rielly)

Tim,

A how-do from the US of A. Being from the cold/wet end of the world, sure do envy you guys on the desert Is.

Welcome aboard. It's funny can't seem to hear your accent on the net or you hear mine.................................._/)

"Lock up your beer and hide the barbeque,..."

I see you've been here!

Not to argue with the wisdom of Radar O'Rielly.. what sane person would after all, but when a Kiwi says it, it takes on new meaning perhaps! (.... and where sheep are frightened)

Yeah... print hides an accent which is good. It tends to surprise readers of my paper when I open my mouth with my thick accent...

But your point is it shouldn't matter eh?! Good on yer!

cheers

Coming from the only place in the world with no accent I can assure you we can cope with all of yours

Oh by the way Bob we prefer the term Waka Blond, 'sheep' just sounds a tad course

I keep a couple of crown larger onboard for a mate that doesn't like "strong" beer.
Yeah Gmac, I dunno why everyone else in the world speak with accents either. But mate, I haven't heard of Waka blond before. What does that mean. Waka is Moari for a mode of transport.
