New Toy

For our friends who no longer are able to have a trailer under their Yacht ;-) and we all use a mast and sails at the end of the day (or start of the day!!)

Does that make me a transvestite. :wink:

It was a 975 listed on boatsales and local to me, Brisbane Waters. Very thoroughly overhauled with one defect so I got it cheap.
Talking about Tardis, I was contemplating that as a name but doesn't seem so appropriate now. It did suit a Roberts 36 I was looking at.
The wife likes it and so long as she keeps liking it all is good. 8)

The for sale advertising above gives the model a very good rap, what are the cruising plans?

For the time being we'll just be floating around Lake Macqauarie, as soon as I can get her in here.
We have our own 'hotel quarantine' style local government organisational excellence with the dredger. (Read cheap & nasty contractor several months overdue.) so I'm still checking to see whether we can pass through the Swansea Channel and waiting for a favourable tide sequence which is still 9-10 days away. Plenty to do in the meantime anyway, luckily the boat is only 45 min drive away.
They are light and airy inside with a nice comfortable flat side deck, easy to move around outside. Cockpit is a bit dingey but that is typical of the vintage. Big & slow & solid, more than capable of coastal cruising, who knows what the future may hold. 8)
Cheers Robin.
