Hi fellow sailors

Lived in NZ for 25 yrs started off with a Sabre 22 trailor yacht, then to an Alan Wright Tracker, liked the fractional rig of the Sabre better, lived on Waiheke Island for 10 yrs good fun. Moved to Gold Coast Australia bought a s/h Hobie 16, great fun for the dollar, sailed it under water with 6 people on it in gusty conditions, came up again when released the mainsheet. Between boats at the moment but eldest son Sean building an Easy 10.5 in Cairns, keep it in the family. If things work out want to buld a suitable Cat.

Ian

Hey Ian - just joined up 'n ran a search for Easy 10.5 and came up with yr name + mention of your son in Cairns - My wifr and I live in cairns and am in the process of buying an Easy 10.5 - I hope we'll have it by Christmas. Would be interested to hook up with your son if you think it would be appropriate
