Second Life

Hello All
I am a 52 semi retied electrician moving into my second life after almost most given up working. I have a 34 foot Van Der Stat "Sea Magic" at Yaringa Marina AUS where I am teaching the crew ( that would be the wife ) how to sail and working on the yacht to a more livable state.

I have already found a great amount of very useful information on this site.

Hi iswaswillbe.
visit Yaringa all the time. Have done for years.which side is your boat on (food side or work side !) I will be bringing my new boat down there as soon as I can to finish rigging and topside painting. Then launched. Sadly things are going a little slow at the moment. (is your boat steel ?)


cheers
