I have only just joined the forum myself today but noticed your intro post. We have a house at Tanilba Bay in Port Stephens but we spend most of the year out here in Alice Springs.
We are just going through the hoops of purchasing
a sports cruiser, we were buying
one already birthed at D'Alboras in Nelson Bay but it failed survey
so we backed out on that one.
We have since found another cruiser at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast and we are having the survey
and mechanical checks done this Tuesday if the rain stops long enough. If it passes the inspections then I will be flying over to Brisbane
and motoring it down the coast to Port Stephens in a few weeks time.
I am hoping to find someone on here that has done the trip from Southport to Port Stephens so they can give me some idea of where to make for on the way down and how long I should set aside for the voyage.
