G'Day from Brisbane, Queensland Australia!

Postby Dfife » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:00 am

Hello all, I'm keen to build anything from wood! I'm new to boats but seasoned on aircraft. Sailed 2 x Sydney to Hobarts. The Monaco is a special interest and currently planting the seeds of boatbuilding in my wife's mind... wish me luck..

Welcome aboard. Do post pics when you start the build. Get your wife involved and she will be more agreeable to the process.

Hi Alan, I'm sailing from RQ tomorrow for the finals of the RQYS passage race club Championships. I've admired Caio Bella when docking at A pier. Right next to the blue 56' Grand Banks. On another note did you work for CASA? Cheers D
