G'day to the people on this site. I'm 62, live in North Queensland
and a retired motor mechanic
. The reson I'm visiting your group is to get some feedback on some ideas about cruising the top half of Australia
Hopefully there are some other Australians using the site. I enjoy reading the forums
for 2 reasons, firstly the wonderfully well mannered, civilsed manner in which queries are treated and secondly the wealth of knowledge available from the group.
I have some queries regarding marine diesel engine fuel consumption
but will post them in the correct ( hopefully ) section.
My plan is to take a diesel
cruiser from here in Cairns and follow the coast to approx the same latitude on the west coast
. Rough calculation of about 6,000 NM. This would be done in stages as camping ashore and fishing
most areas would take up quite some time.
