Hi From Queensland

Hello All,
Just subscribed to this forum, thought I would say hi. Wife and I are living on board in marina in Brisbane (northside for those who know where Brisbane is..) We are on board Ushuaia, 38 foot timber ketch and doing minor restoration work. Ultimate plan is to sail down the east coast of oz.. But doing day trips for starters.

Hi From the Brisbane River

Hi, I just joined today & saw ypour message on the intro board. We are parked on the piles in the Brisbane River next to the Botanic Gardens, so let us know if you are coming in this way & want to say hi, or if we are out your way, we'll drop in.
Cheers,
Jill

Hi Jill
we are up at scarborough and haven't ventured that far south yet. Especially with the wind at the moment, we are not going anyway, but daemon (the yacht) looks gorgeous.

Hi Damo (Ushuaia),
Welocome - Happy New Year!
Planning our first overnight sail on Minx to the wrecks (straddy) and on to Manley from Mooloolaba as soon as this weather fines up.
Thaught we'd spend one night at Manley, is it easy to get a mooring at Manley? Happy sailing. Cheers - Jon
