My partner and I have purchased our first boat! She's a 1996 Simpson 11.6 extended to 12 metres. We picked her up on the 28th Dec, sailed her to Sydney
Harbour and spent New Years on the water
with the rest of Sydney
. On the 3rd of Jan we sailed her up to Lake Macquarie where we are settling into the long term job of getting her up to scratch.
Thank you all for the great (and dud) advice
along the way. I wouldn't've been able to do this without you.
