We're from Waikiki, West Australia
which is about 30km south of Fremantle.
We have recently bought a 30 year old Tayana Vancouver 42, a very solid vessel but one which requires quite a considerable amount of work ranging from mechanical issues and electrical
problems through to osmosis
correction, in addition to stripping out 30 years worth of redundant wiring
, piping and equipment
We're not seasoned sailors but have spent our lives in, on or under the water fishing
, snorkelling, scuba diving
and surfing as well as sailing within sight of land for about ten years. Competitive sailors would be dismayed at our sail trim on occasion but we travel with comfort in mind.
We're here to learn from others as well as sharing our experiences as we go. Looking forward to exchanging information with all salts, old and new!
