Hello Terryk

We do have some of the best cruising grounds in Australia. The winds here are mainly se to sw so we don't have much of a problem getting to The Kimberlies, Monty Bello's, Dampier Achipeligo, Exmouth Gulf and my home cruising grounds The Shark Bay Area. We do have lots of boats calling in from coming around the top. The hardest stretch is probaly from Nor West cape to Geralton. I'am bulding the Sarah plan number 12 mainly for a Kimberly trip. Started Easter 2009. Turned the hulls on the 24th July 2010 (My Birthday) Will post more pics later I had a bit of a problem with the last lot.



Cheers Romeo

Thought i'd give an update as it is nearly a year since last one. Stopped work on boat in the middle of September due to daughters wedding in October. Comes December and we get hid with 260mm of rain in one hit and the Gascoyne river decides to flood to its highest peak ever recorded. El Coyote floated in 1.5 meters of flood water and hit the shed roof which stopped it floating out of the shed. When the water receded it had moved about a meter forward and a 200mm to the side. No damage done. Have retreived almost everything. Most tools still worked after drying out. The house had a meter of water. It went over the cement wall I had built to protect it by 150mm.
Have just about finished tiling, painting, rekitchening and refurnishing it in the last six months and have started back on the boat. Painted inside all of front lockers today and hope to sheet tomorrow.
Cheers Romeo

With the right contacts, you could make arrangements to save on the cost of transport to the water!
