    Hi Ian,

    We had a ripper 2 blade folding prop (from a modified Young 88) in almost mint condition. We sold it, a couple of weeks ago, to Alf Doedens, for his Farr 37 - Quality Equipment (the old NorTas). Sorry cobber.

    The only one we have left now is a old, rather slogged-out old Seahawk 2-blade feathering prop. It is 1" shaft, but it is, frankly, pretty tired. If you need a prop a.s.a.p. in order to be able to sail, you are welcome to it, but I certainly wouldn't see it as any sort of long-term solution.

    Good job on the remodeling. We have just started ours. Our 27' Morgan needs a lot of TLC. Hopefully it will turn as well as yours has.

    G'day Ian, Thanks for the comments regarding my yacht. I have just had a browse through your photo's, you also have done a great job. Its amazing what a bit of time and effort (and money) can do. Well done! Looking forward to taking mine out for the first time. Have some finishing off to do to the running rigging and just minor details. Great to hear from you and happy sailing, your friend Matthew.

    Hi there Portobello ( Ian ),
    I am not sure if you remember me, Amani,( Matthew ), you helped my with some info on the Doven 30. I haven't been on here for a while but i thought that you might be interested in some photo's that i have added to my profile. The interior refurbish has been finished, a while ago now, just thought you would be interested. All the best, Matthew.

    Hi Ian, Yes that trip is on our wish list, but not for a few years yet. maybe a couple of shorter passages to wilsons prom and back first. Around here we can sail around the Island which is a full days sailing , or up into port phillip one full day[ one way] or around our race marks inside westernport for a few hours. cheers and regards for the festive season Jim

    G'day Ian,

    Insatiable is currently sitting snugly in a berth on the floating section of the Beauty Point marina! We sneaked off under cover of darkness on Friday evening and arrived at dawn on Monday morning... a relatively undemanding delivery apart from Banks Straight, with 25knots on the nose, westerly swell, westerly sea and easterly current... naaaasty... but that aside, mostly pretty pleasant.... no breakages (except the dunny seat), no seasickness, although we did find a couple of spots where water came in that we didn't previously know about!

    Anyway, I hope that your delivery is equally as uneventful and pleasant as ours.
    Good luck and sail safe.
