Gooday '9999' - & to you - Arohanui from Far North Queensland. Sorry to take so long to reply - have had several lightening strikes & hae been without computers for some time now. Ooops. And like you - I'm trying to return to N.T. - asap & intend to use that as my home base in Australia for the next 15 years or so. Have a 'supa' mate who lives in Howard Springs. I'm trying to buy a 40' tri in SE Asia - which is very light & as quick as which I can cruise & do a bit of racing if I keep it light enough. I'd sure like to do the Darwin to Ambon this year but can't sell the property here in Far North Qld - as yet - - so it may have to be 2013 - DAMN - but life's like that - eh. Like you then I will stay up in SE Asia & keep cruising. Nice life-style & affordable for me. Look at trying to get a few - enjoyable crew to - have fun & enjoy the sun, sailing & a few races. Time will be the master of my destiny. Ciao, james
