Newbie from Queensland

Hi folks, I joined here because I am a ferro fan and have noticed quite a gathering of owners on this site. I was closely associated with the medium in the early days in NZ. (1960's) and built a Hartly Tahitian hull in the 70's down in Brisbane. I modified it for barramundi fishing but things changed before it was finished so she became a prawner in Moreton Bay. Still working to this day I think. These days I am an armchair sailer but still like to dream. I would build another about 20ft. but they are too labour intensive really. Regards rayman.
