Hi from OZ

Hi All,

My name is Craig, I am based in Sydney Australia. I have a small Supersonic 27 that my wife and i cruise in locally. The plan is to buy a bigger boat soon, and take a couple of years of work for a sabbatical cruise.

Greetings, and welcome aboard Craig.

I was confused by your description of a “small” Supersonic 27, until I saw this ad for one isted at 28.22 Ft, and another listed at 27 feet (both 8.23m).
SUPERSONIC Boats for sale in Australia - boatsales.com.au

Anyway, nice boat.

Thanks Gord,

She is a great boat and has looked after us novice sailors well over the past 6 years.

Thanks all for the warm welcome.

And welcome from Jim and Ann, s/v Insatiable II. We'll be back to our boat in Gladstone at the end of the month, so I guess this is a sorta Aussie welcome, too.

Cheers,

Jim

Aloha Craig,
Welcome aboard from an island "up over." That's opposite of "down under."
Good to have you here.
Kind regards,
JohnL
