Hi from another Australian

Hi all, fairly new to the cruising lifestyle. Have been liveaboard our Leopard 42 this year up and down the Queensland coast. A big learning curve. I have read most of the posts on here, but thought I would keep my mouth shut and my eyes and ears open for a while but now....
Regards
Peter

Hi, there, swampbush,

That's a pleasant area to hang around in. Do keep a weather eye out for crocs.

Hi swampbush, I purchased the catalina 470 that was opposite you in moololahbah, fairly certain we purchased in the same week. Spoke to the previous owner of your boat, seemed like a nice guy.
