Bob there are plenty of phone contact details in Contacts & Officials, take your pick for assistance if required.
Certainly if it best suits you some there are from Qld, I suspect you're from Gold Coast.

Re: "TOP END of the MYALLS CRUISE" 19th-20th May 2018.

Well the w/end which was full of great weather condition has come & gone but, it has left us somewhat reinvigorated after a marvellous time was had. Rob & I work to hard & don't get out to enjoy our boat near enough however, we certainly enjoyed the company of some very decent people &am...

Re: Replacement Cushions for C18

Fella's over the period of time & of doing up a few boats I've simply found it easy to either visit an upholsterer who specialises in car & marine works. He'll have the high density foam & size you require whether your needs are for interior or cockpit seating. He'll more than likely als...

Re: Bay to Bay 5-6th May 2018

Onya John. Yes,, it all sounds as though the second half of the Sunday got very exciting. My brother Lloyd & I have done some pretty big wave surfing in the event in that same Big W area back in I believe 08'-09' with "Buhawi" (which now resides in Townsville after being sailed there f...

Re: 'CAREELS in CANBERRA'.

It's never to early to start preparing boats & trialling all equip for an event. Then there's holidays & time off work to organise plus accommodation if required & you're not camping out on boat. We'd like to see a huge turn out at LBG & another big reason for the move to the Nov. da...

Re: "My Mini Stable of C18 For Sale".

Well Davie,, thanks for the kind words. I/we (we meaning, good wife Rob) have in the past always cared for any C18 that have come our way whether purchased outright or that of someone who has required assistance in some form or another. It's a funny thing but, we've ended up with a situation current...

"TOP END of the MYALLS CRUISE" 19th-20th May 2018.

Yes, its on again & its a great time of year to enjoy the Myalls ! There are no excuses not to attend barring crook weather (either very wet or big winds) or a broken leg as you would've all treated all the Mum's to their day the week earlier,, so now its your turn &/or still theirs if you b...
