Good to welcome you to the site.
Your shot of the 36 took me back and it's berth in Freo was close by where we once kept one of our boats!
Looks like Mandurah has developed since we last visited (circa 1996) and I've no doubt you'll enjoy the boat.
Re the comment on cruiser / racer
- I knew Ted Matthews quite well years back - he built most of the 36's for the Australias Cup - and whilst he wanted them seen as racers in truth Farr designed them with cruising in mind.
So enjoy - and maybe see you sailing further afield later on..........
