    I think it was priced at a couple of hundred thousand originally, it's been up for a while. It looks a bit like the equivalent of buying a 'handyman special' wooden boat. If you wanted to start a club of some kind it could be great

    I better make my mind up soon since despite all my efforts I am not receiving any additional feedback.

    Drop the bone. Good dog.

    I don't know if anyone is feeling social around Monday or Tuesday up the east coast? We are on our way over to visit with a much loved aunt in Ballina who is quite unwell. We might ten catch up with some friends living on a yacht in BumsBay or Southport Marina. Other than that we have some time on our hands. Probably hit the road back home on Wednesday. We are in Dubbo tonight. Loving the 70s pop top camper thing.

    Looks a bit "I want to be alone" to me, a paling fence on a jetty? And the other jetty………. a bit home made do you think?
    Probably not a good neighbour.

    We will have to play things by ear a bit. The aunt has very little energy so it's a game of wait and see if she's up to a visit.

    Watch out for those big bastwerds. They play chicken with boats. Last year I had three of the cheeky monstrous leviathans cross my path deliberately to make me swerve and stall. I could hear them laughing at me as they charged flat out across my track, close enough to go eye-to-eye and grin to grin with me.

    I'm going to put off the eye op till next year and pull the boat out in October. I'm sick of waiting and the rot is not going to fix itself.

    Anyone wants to join Phil and myself for a two hour whale watching trip across the Tweed Bar aboard WB departing Boyd’s Bay jetty around lunch time this coming Tuesday?
    Possible EBS at the Ivory pub next to the bridge unconfirmed at this time?

    Yes, sounds good but I'll have to check with Management to see if I'm otherwise booked.
