    General purpose picnic/ fishing/ utility boat for the syndicate is it Rick? ( boat syndicate , not THAT syndicate, although .. ah forget it,...)

    Subject on Crew.org at the moment about the Barrotts, Rick. I mentioned that sterling and comprehensive weather reporting job I did for you on your Masina passage.
    = google earth on one page, metvuw situation and forecast scaled to the same on another, and scaled markings on a post it note for daily runs. It all worked really well except for the marker pen dots on the monitor screen. hahahahahahaha.

    You won't have to wait long. The owner's booking the crane and truck ASAP.

    Thanks JB! Yep, that was a great trip and your help was really appreciated. Terrific to see what the Barrotts are up to! Can't wait to get Masina's new engine in and get going on a few trips.

    Thanks Rick, I really was just having a laugh about it and my 'technology' courtesy of 3M post it notes and google earth. The routing we got on our trip back to NZ was just spot on and world away from that . Perth based weather guy with a satellite photo and us on it via tracker and emailed position reports . Not to mention the predictwind forecasts we also had access to via iridium go on the boat.
    It moves fast, this technology thing.

    And launched at Lemon Tree, just 1 km away:

    All is well except the engine controls were back to front (easily fixed) and she's sitting way low at the bow, so she's going to get some lead in the stern to balance her. Quite a rebirthing for a 100 year old boat!

    What is her intended use after being returned to service?
