    Hi Jim

    I appreciate your comment.
    "Mr TN often posts unsupported comments like this. I've tried to argue with him, and I'm glad to see another who is willing to try."
    This experience would lead me towards to just PM a member with relevant info rather than pit up with nonsense like that of TN. Of course that's not really the point in having a forum. I'm not even that inclined to give my two cents worth very often. When members practice such poor decorum it degrades the quality of the forum, and it seems it only takes a few to do that. In a different social environment TN would be sidelined very quickly, I wonder why it should be different on a forum.

    discovered an old thread where you mention your auxiliary-rudder windvane-selfsteerer: what brand is it?

    I think our paths crossed down around Sydney, sorry to have missed sharing an anchorage with you. But we're north at Camden Haven and heading further up in a few days time. Look, we'll be wintering at our shack on the Richmond, so if you get up that way, send us a message capjack2j at gmail dot com

    hello Jim
    I see you are still in Sydney, I am starting to think you may like the cooler temperatures down here

    re: scuttling an abandoned vessel. Scuttling sounds like a good idea. I had never thought about it. It would be a shame for another vessel to hit it and suffer damage or worse.

    Hi Jim, Anne,

    Well I got the radar going on land (on top of the car!!) Poor echoes but I think I need to adjust the tuning presets as the best returns were obtained with the tuning knob hard over.

    Thanks again

    Enjoy WB festival. I'm sad I wont get to it but the consolation is I might have a crew on trimaran sailing East Indonesia (Moluccas, Irian Jaya) in July. Actually the owners are in Hobart presently -camping on their bush block on side of Mt Wellington - -"Shanghaied" a good read
