Gladstone Marina

Spent a few weeks here and loved the Marina. A lot of money been spent here. Very friendly staff and on the cheaper side with pricing, they will even come and catch dock lines if you request. Can Uber to Woolies or the train station for a few bucks. The marina is run by the Gladstone Harbour Authori...

Re: Camera as forward lookout

Have one facing down the anchor chain below the anchor roller. Allows single helm operation with anchor retrieval from the 'Helm position'. Given that the anchor winch should only be used to retrieve the chain and anchor, not pull the yacht forward at the same time as anchor retrieval (unless you ha...

Re: Peter Snell retired?

Yes he has. I am told that Anne (Peters wife) has been posting on an active EASY Facebook page run by Michael and Jess on Sailing Popau. May be an avenue to take. By the way, Sailing POPAU are a great couple living life to the full on a budget (on an EASY) and boy can they catch fish...😳. Dial them ...

Re: Sarah 41

Dean We only did small glue fillets either side of the stringer, except for stringers that were used for floors, cupboards or shelves. Additionally, we lined many visual (ie not in the cupboards) internal sides with 6mm (well resined the sealed cavities). Ensure that you keep it as clean and smooth ...

Re: Sarah 41

Beav222 I would cover the hulls from direct sunlight, even with a cheap tarp. We invited the paint specialist out to view ours prior to finishing. He suggested a light sand 120grit to break the skin. We then chose a nonablative followed by ablative paints from the same manufacturer. Yes, call overbo...

Re: Piston Broke

Hey Dazza
Now ten years in the water and the additional paint is literally ‘worth it’s wait in gold’. We have done one cutback externally and still have another 5-8 years I reckon. Inside, it still as we painted it.

I wouldn’t change what you are doing, in particular below waterline.

Re: The Boatworks, Coomera, Qld.

Quite simply, the BEST! Excellent haulout using either a travel lift or sealift, clean concrete hardstand area, THREE courtesy cars (2 of them utes), FREE laundry facilities, good amenities for liveaboards, great helpful friendly staff, AND CHEAP! Amazingly, the best is not the most expensive. Prob...
