    Are you after a project motor Phil? Is this for your boat?

    While on matters galley related. If ever you see a set of these Tefal saucepans for sale I'd suggest you buy them. Handle clicks on and off so they stack well. Thick bottom with copper implants. Good non stick. They stack so take little space. We've had this set for quite a lot of years. I like my Maxie metho stove.

    Seems pretty good to me. If motors are as good as they look and have been serviced properly, they should be as good as new.

    I'm assuming they come from the breakers in Bangladesh so may be available cheaper more directly? Still a good price for very good engines.

    I call this dish Rice with Sweet Chilli and Lime Salmon. I found the lime a bit strong. But that's the fault of Mr West. John West. Not bad in a snug cabin on a cold wet windy day. Next time I may sprinkle a little sugar on it. Thai street food stalls always have a little server on the table with chilli, lime, soy and sugar. It works.

    I don’t blame you I have the top model Maxie with the broiler on WB , it rusts and is not even made out of stainless, presently it’s sitting in my shed after the welds failed on one side during my trip North. It is crap and hard to believe they sell for $700.
    Gas is the best combined with a solenoid shut of switch and vented outside storage for the bottle.
    Mine uses the disposable cartridges which I remove when I'm not on board. The pizo lighter means it lights straight away. I figure as long as I'm very careful with it I shouldn't blow myself and the boat up.
    Tom any other yachts going to head up to Tumbulgum?

    No. My boat has a lovely 110hp Yanmar turbo with very low hours. Sweet as a nut. Ive just always liked Gardners and stumbled upon that one while idly perusing Grays Online. Then looked at Gardner on Gumtree so the internet now thinks I'm in the market for a marine diesel which led me to the Yanmars which I supposed just might be of interest to someone here. I guess some enterprising chap has bought a container load from the breakers.

    The Gardner could go in this I guess. A bit of Ospho on the rusty fastenings, hit it with a chopper gun, good to go. No. Just kidding.

    Some years ago, the manager of the aquarium at Taronga Zoo, in Sydney, was Mr John West.

    Long ago, the head of the NSW Egg Board was Mr McClucky too (not sure of the spelling). My favourite.

    I think this would be a really nice retirement project for someone. Roomy boats are a lot easier to work on!

    There's a word for that. Where the persons occupation seems to have been determined by their name. Always gives me a chuckle.

    Like the look of her, raised decks are cool.
    Minus mast she looks like a larger version of my sister's launch, kept at Goolwa last time I heard. Bit of a mess inside but likely doable if the hull is reasonably sound. Course you'd need a mooring……….

    A mooring comes as an optional extra for $3000. I do think it looks like a really good project boat.

    I did a reply to that but figured it wasn't kosher for this thread, despite being true.

    I've heard a whisper that a nice 25 footer might be coming up for sale in Adelaide soon...

    I'll get them to put the toilet seat down, steady the teacups, paint the Yanmar green then take some flattering photos.

    Do you think the seller would deliver it to the Gold Coast?

    Depends on how seaworthy it looks, but it might be possible to arrange a gentle delivery via sea rather than a spine rattling truck delivery. I know a bloke who knows a bloke...

    Oh, it's not Arawana. The 25 footer is a timber yacht.

    Geez mate... I thought you were giving us a subtle heads up on an Arawana sale.

    Speaking of spine rattling truck deliveries, I got the quote for delivering Grantala to a mate's place, up near Coffs. $5.6k for the truck. Add $0.75k for two Franna's at the other end and about the same at this end for loading via the Travelift. Call it $7k. I'm almost certain to do that, rather than cut her up. The mate's Dad is a retired builder. I'm sending up all my workshop gear to them too... bandsaws, table saw, thicknesser, jointer, spindle sander, etc. If his Dad feels like playing... he can. Who knows... she may see the water again. It's worth giving her the chance, rather than cutting her up (which would leave my wallet a lot healthier)

    Every week I drive past Grantala Street and wonder how it's going.

    Regarding Arawana, there may be news soon. Depends on someone else at the moment. Arawana is not for sale publicly but that will come to pass sooner or later.

    The tea did not stay in the cup. And the cold sore seems to have gone away. Like the fruit cake.

    WB gaff conversion is back on and I have plans to sail her with her new rig in next years Vintage Regatta.

    Presently exploring the idea of building a lighter scantling 8-9 m box mast and shaping it. Going square rather than birds mouth in my opinion will be quicker require less accuracy and manpower.

    Looking for feedback on my proposal?
