Default Hi from Perth

Hi all,
Have been round and about for a while.
28 working days left then a road trip from Perth, WA, to Bowen Qld where the yacht is waiting, then home is where the anchor touches.
By the way I am counting,
Cheers, Emmo

Hi Emmo,

Good luck with your endeavours ... what kind of yacht have you got? I live up in Port Douglas on my yacht doing lil trips for the moment till I raise some cruising funds to explore the top end and asia.

If you get up this way give me a shout ... its a good community up here, friendly yacht club and people.

Don't stop into Townsville to get marine services done... its kind of expensive and well many have had bad experiences at the main slipway there which happens to be almost brand new.

Anyway enjoy ...

Lexx

Hi Lexx,
I have bought a Hartley Queenslander 36 ft, and at some stage am certain to get up your way, no fixed plans at this stage,
Cheer, Emmo

Nice boat, I had a Hartley Q many years ago and she was an enjoyable yacht with loads of room for her size .. what the hull material?

Laughs, love living on my yacht, and like you, I have no real fixed plans and there is always something new to discover cruising this magic coast.

She's a ferro, seems to be roomy, lots of storage, ideal liveaboard.
Can't wait to get over there and start the life.
Cheers, Emmo
