Zoe Hawkins:

To anyone who's ever admired Ellen Macarthur or Claire Francis or dreamed of doing something that's bigger than ben hur, you'll definitely want to like Ash's page and follow her on her journey to the Solo Tasman. She's not funded by parents or benefactors, she's the real deal, making it happen against the odds.

What happened in the end with the old boat? I saw it at Kawau on anniversary weekend, did someone buy it off insurance and repair it all?

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Thanks Rohan! Could really use your help, but the moral support is always good as well! :D :thumbup:

Yes, the guy bought it on Trademe real cheap, sealed her up from the outside and popped her back in the water. Apparently she takes on about a litter a day of water. I personally would not have done that, but it's his boat now, so can't really say much to change that. Atleast she didnt get chopped up for parts as she is a good boat!

Ha :lol:

Well first off....how good are you with tools? Sailing? What baggage do you come with? Are you hot? How old are you? :think: :P

Don't think my partner would be to happy if I turned around and married you... BUt hey maybe in a month he will be running away from me, so stay tuned! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
