New C18 owner Lake Macquarie

Postby fair winds » Sun Nov 01, 2015 6:34 pm

Hi all,

I purchased my first Careel 18 yesterday from a gentleman in Brisbane - "Linda Lass" No 449. We towed it back home to Lake Macquarie (9.5 hour trip) and managed to park it in a tight spot next to the garage - if it was any nonger I would have been in trouble!

Very happy with the boat and looking forward to getting it out on the Lake. We are keen to learn and plan to take it out on the other waterways nearby such as Wallis Lake, Port Stephens etc.

Happy sailing.
