'The boat' is my current project. I am now (16-11-2009) on the Gold Coast
staying on my Roberts29 while I promote the book
From here I will start my search for a ketch, somewhere between 40 and
50ft that I can live on and restore. I will search the Internet as
well as travel up and down the East coast of Oz leaving my details with
boat brokers and locals. I expect that the boat that I am looking for
will not be being advertised for sale, but rather languishing somewhere
up a creek, on a mooring or at anchor, waiting for me to find it.
I have already started spreading the word through friends and boat brokers that I am looking.
At this stage 'the boat' needs to be a timber ketch, 40 to 50ft,
"on the water" but otherwise in run down condition. I may re-define my
requirements as reality dictates.

if you have any questions about the boat project.
As of 11th May 2009, I have acquired a 29ft Roberts yacht
and this will be my "in-between" boat and accommodation as I do the
book promotion and search for the 45ft dream restoration project.
