Dear Bob, Jolly, Dan, Cooper
& the members
Thanks for the posts and we're just fine and busy getting things done.
Believe me - as you all no doubt appreciate - it's a lifetime commitment and joy - building and living aboard
your yacht - despite the frustrations - and neverending challenges. So there's plenty to keep us on the go - and still allowing time for laying in the cockpit
reading a book - and giving Penny a pat - too.
As most of you know from this thread - I am a prolific emailer and love to send out photos and graphics to all the family
and friends of our website thedogpaddler.com. All the newsletter emails telling just about every 'adventure' - we get up to (today we're cleaning
some of our large water tanks
- which qualifies still as an adventure) - and I'd welcome anyone to have a look anytime at the recent ones.

And better still - if you'd like me to include you on the list of friends - and send them straight to you - like all the other poor 'victims' - I mean Family
and Friends - that are buried in stuff about us - then please drop me an email
. But I do like to boast that Penny & I - send out - 'the best emails on the planet'.
And it certainly is nice - that when we don't send one for a couple of days - we are inundated with letters - enquiring - what's wrong.
We are in Botany Bay - just South of Sydney
Harbour - and it is where the Sydney International Airport
is located - and we can see it across the bay - north of us. The bridge you refer to is The Captain
Cook Bridge - immediately west of us.
Here is a link to an earlier email
with some maps of our location:
080331 YACHT WILL BE LEAVING THE DOCK on SATURDAY
And here is an aerial photo
- taken by a tourist flying in (or out) - that I 'borrowed' from Flickr.
Once again - thanks for the kind remarks - and the idea of a 'live-aboard, assistant, cleaner, cook, companion' - who could probably even help out in other important areas as well - is ALWAYS under consideration - but rarely consummation. But we all live in hope.
Until next time.
