Sorry to hear you just had time wasters on ebay haiqu.
Yeah, thanks. I ended up hauling the Tasman out at Montys Marina in Beachmere about 6 months ago. She's still on the hard and I haven't even started working on it at all. Too busy doing embedded programming but I have been living aboard the whole time.
I ran her up there from the Brisbane River across Morton Bay with a 6hp outboard.
Right now I'm visiting Sydney for the first time in two years, and living on the Hartley Queenslander until the 28th when I'll be going to a reunion of some old hippies I knew in the 70's. The weather - and seagulls, which had taken up residence for breeding purposes - left a bit of a mess, and my 6yo wiring job will need redoing due to corrosion.
I'm only down here for a fortnight so trying to just make her look outwardly presentable to the authorities so they keep off my back until I can "get a round tuit" and move her to a yard.
At least now I can get started, I received a small inheritance when my father passed a couple of years ago and no longer have to scrimp for materials. Having two boats is still non-optimum but it's certainly nice to have a cheap place to stay in Sydney. When you consider the cost of accomodation here a grand a year for the mooring and rego is peanuts.
