    Rick , no I hadn't seen that one.
    It looks like someone has spent a hell of a lot of time on that boat , and I've gone over the photos a lot , but I can't get enthused , I'm sorry.
    I'm looking for a flat deck if possible , and a wheelhouse , something like Bernard Wilsons own boat would be perfect !.
    Its a time and motion study , and you should be able to go all around the boat with your eyes closed.
    But thanks for posting Rick , she looks interesting , but not for me.
    Regards Rob J.

    I have to admit I don't like it either - but I thought I should mention it anyway.

    Duncan she too has been on the market for some time , and I did enquire about her ages back , when the owner was asking well over $100,000 , as she ticked a lot of boxes.
    But I was advised that she needs a lot of work , and it would be big dollar work , so I stepped back from her.
    Its not only that the total cost would be so high , but it would mean a long time in a boat yard being worked on.
    I'm buying to use , not work on.
    The ideal is the Bernard Wilson boat . A headsail on a self furler , a gaff rig with lazy jacks and winch , easy for one person to operate safely.
    Oh , and Bernard has a 6cylinder B series Cummins in his boat too , so if you need HP , its there.
    Although I would prefer the 4LW in the boat you put up.
    That boat does like nice , but I was advised by someone who knew her to stay away from her , unless you had a very fat wallet.
    And , like on Bernards boat , I'd like a flat deck.
    Regards , and thanks Rob J.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen you mention Juliene before Rob, she's up there in $$ but I just like the look of her and I wonder how long she's been for sale and how negotiable they might be now? A King Billy pine hull.....5LW 78hp Gardner........roller furling headsail

    Greg , yes , Juliene is probably the bench mark on the Aussie boats.
    She has it all , a Bernard Wilson double ender , a 5LW , the right deck , everything.
    They were asking a lot of money , and she was on the market for a long time , but after her exposure at the Hobart WBF , she sold.
    I spoke to the previous owner just after that , he was justifiably proud of her . Apparently going down to Tassie she really flew at one stage , the Bass Strait does that !.
    But to be honest , I think I prefer Kamada , I'm just going to be fishing/trolling , after all.
    She offers the basic accomodation , and would do the job well.
    But that is the style of boat I want , tough , practical , and Bernard made them.
    Regards Rob J.

    Just out of interest, anyone else use Firefox and have trouble seeing images from boatsonline? I can only see them if I use Explorer.

    I use Firefox John, and I see images on that site.

    I havn't changed anything from the default settings in my setup.

    Perhaps Gary will be along to suggest something.

    I saw this image over on the Morgan thread.

    Does the bloke on the right resemble anyone you know?

    I support your opinion of Kamala Rob, especially if you want a working boat, something you can fish from and not worry too much if she smells like a fishing boat occasionally .

    Can I stretch that until I find something more appealing? There must be a lot of various coloured mice around and "the blue Trac stabiliser hydraulic hose fitting" doesn't quite have the correct ring to it, though "the blue busted shackle" at much the same distance isn't much better, nor "the blue 3 3/4 inch hole saw" or "the blue sticky note pad" - but if I look left, I could be "the blue mug" and we could be "the pair of mugs"!

    Yeah Rick... I know the Funnel Webs like to play dead... so I left it there. Want to show the kids too. I reckon its well dead though... its upside down.
    It's just something I was told once. Friends had a pool that used to regularly have `dead' funnel webs in it and they'd been warned that they can stay `dormant' underwater for a long time.

    By the way, your dog called to complain about you.

    I think you are limited to your first choice.

    But if not I have morphed to flannelette 150 year old huon pine section.

    I've just spent 10 minutes carefully counting the growth rings and the section was 350 years old when the tree was cut.

    I bought a really good light weight leather jacket from a bloke at a recent market. $8 for the jacket and $10 for a Record rebate plane. I'm wearing the jacket. It's black .

    The shiraz is Jacobs Creek.

    Watching a show on SBS tonight it was mentioned that the Mediterranean Sea doesn't have tides

    At least not as we know them.
