    Hi Jim! Are you currently in Pittwater? I heard of an ally Sayer in Pittwater just last week? No other details that that, but I was hoping to take a look!
    And only a few days ago Sally told me there was another sayer at Newport? I'm assuming that may be you? Small world it is.
    When did you last see Waywood? Was that w the previous owner, Kieth?
    I had Waywood slipped at Mckenzie marine only a few months ago.. did some major changes, maintenance, updates etc. Very pleased w her atm.
    Anywho, great to finally meet another Sayerite!

    Hello Jim. Do you have any thoughts on using a swivel on the Manson supreme? I heard that you had a theory on swivels. Cheers Phil

    Hello Jim,

    I am pretty sure I saw you heading up river to load some coal, or something else up the Hunter River on Saturday. I was skiff sailing. I am still keen on going to Tasmania in late November early December. I was hoping to get more input from you if I may.

    - Do you carry many paper charts? I have almost none of south of Sydney. I always go north. I think I will need about 8 or so.
    - Do you use Open CPN? I can buy some electronic or scanned charts. Do you prefer one or the other?
    If you are around for a while and need a hand to get something. Give me a call and I can run you around in the car after work. I would offer you dinner when you get to the lake but it is still pretty shallow here.

    Sorry Jim, I ran out of space regarding my raw water to exhaust manifold question.

    Should the petcock on top of the anti-siphon u shaped pipe be normally open or normally closed? Thanks, Jeff

    Hi Jim and Ann,
    I have been looking for you on Marine Traffic but have not seen a position since May. Kathy and I were wondering where you are and how you are doing? Please contact us here or at jeff at kp44 dot org.

    I see that you have a Sayer. I'm looking at buying one of his boats and wanted some input.

    I believe its a very strong and fast boat and pretty easy to sail solo. Its obviously very spartan inside, more of a racing build-out. Do you think the sailing ability would be much affected if I was to make some additions to the interior? For example I'd replace the pipe cots in the aft quarters with real berths, maybe pressure water, more batteries and solar.
    I'd add a Hydrovane to the stern for steering and to have rudder redundancy, make the dodger/bimini a bit more protective and sheltered.

    Whats your experience with the sailing ability? Is this boat something you can set the sails conservatively on and leave for a few hours? Does she slam much in heavy seas? Have you every had any issues with the rudder?

    Any info you could give me would be much appreciated

    did you make it up this way? We're at East Coast Marina in Manly Hbr -
    "G'Day Rebar, and welcome to the CF madhouse. Wonder where you are living aboard in the Brissie area? We'll be back up that way in the fall or early winter... maybe cross wakes somewhere.
