    Goodday ausieman,
    looks a Mauritius? I just sold one after spending 2 years fixing her up "Quo Vadis II". Beautiful, comfortable and built like a battleship!
    good luck and great cruising!

    Hi Mark thanks for the reply I know how busy one gets… that’s cool.
    Well I actually have 2 Investigators, 1 I bought to fix up and I was given another one without a mast that the previous owner had partially started on a restore and he then bought a Boomerang 22. so he gave that Investigator to me, so two TS’s and neither of them are ready to sail yet (but fingers x’ed after xmas), they will never win races either purely for weekend cruising. My wife (Di) and I are keen sailors and dream of a cruising retirement and that will hopefully be in 5 years (when we are 50) So we have been doing lots of home work on a suitable boat and the Roberts 44 is a boat we always look at because of the numbers afloat and the apparent volume inside, and of course yours caught or eye as having an unusual interior that was very nice on the eye. Our plan is for Steel and in the 40-44ft range Ketch or Masthead rig, we plan to be on her for 20+ years so she has to be easy to use and bullet proof.
    We live half way between Sydney and Melbourne on the Hume Hwy and have done a fair bit of sailing on Port Phillip Bay. We went down there for Geelong race week last year and had a ball sailing on a Farr 38, about two years ago we had the opportunity to deliver a brand new 38 Ft cruising Cat from Brisbane to Townsville, it took 8 days and we loved it although we found the Cat got tossed around a bit in the rough weather however the amount of space on the boat was amazing. We are planning on a Whitsunday’s charter in Sep next year on another Cat but we are sure that a Mono will be what we want to end up with as our own cruising boat.
    So what type of sailing do you normal do? (odd weekender or day trips) I certainly sounds like it is set up for extended cruising. I noted you were not happy with the one large water tank? Why is that?

    Anyway, Hope there is plenty of good sailing weather coming your way and you have the time to get out on her.

    Chat again soon.

    thanks for the return message Aussieman, did you do the interior or purchas it like that as it is very unsual. How do you find the roberts to sail?

    Hi Aussieman, very nice looking Roberts we like the interior, is it a glass boat?
