First day of the "2 best days" :whistling:

If you get real good on your DR.. you can take laps around the deck while out to sea. How many people can say they've done THAT?

Worth every penny. A day on the water, priceless. My last "fixer upper" turned out pretty good. I just sold her after more than 10 years. Trust me I managed on a shoe string.

Funny, the boat 2 down from yours in that pic is the smaller version of my old boat. That's a Chris craft Catalina 251 and I had the 291 with the flying bridge and twin big blocks

I am a member at a club. It's half the cost of a marina. We have no paid staff and we do all the work ourselves. The sailboat used five gallons of diesel last season. We cook and drink on the boat too. It really surprises people that sailing can be a cheap hobby. Hey I do ride a DR after all! Plus, every anchorage has a waterfront view.

Ahh found a pic
Here was my baby sitting at my Dock, the Coastal Princess.......no i did not name it
Image
she was a 1985 Chris Craft Catalina 291.

Kanuck as you mentioned cooking and drinking on the boat, best times ever. when i got her i was barley 22 years old, she was my very first boat i traded my toy hauler for her when i stopped racing seriously. Needless to say at that age with a boat like that many bad decisions were made on that boat between the floating parties, the women, and the pure enjoyment i had on it with all my friends it was the best years of my life, i hope to see some pics of your boat in the water when the weather gets nice


here a pic on one of my other boats i had, a 1966 Donzi Ski Sporter with a 406 stroker. it was boat 166 to leave the Donzi factory.

Boats are a sickness just like bikes, once you have one its in your blood and it never gets out.

What type of yacht is it? Nearer the other end of this year I'll be shopping for a good S&S34 or something equally good for 1 or 2 handed coastal cruising, with perhaps a bit of Indian and Pacific Ocean touring. I intend to start with about 3 to 4 years "bay hopping" around Oz.

Crash, what happens on the boat, stays on the boat. :2_thumbsup: :drinks: nice boats. You only live once.

Dinsdale, She is a Hughes 38. Drawn by Sparkman & Stephens. She is a project but she has good bones.

I hear boats are crazy money down under? I often thought that boat flipping in oz would be a great way to fund a cruising lifestyle. All kinds of bargains in NA.
