G'day been away doing other stuff.

Post by Boblee » Sun Feb 07, 2016 4:27 pm

G'day all been travelling a bit differently since we sold Trust me and while enjoying the new way missing the ease and flexibility of the Macgregor but the wife isn't.
Hope everyone is enjoying their boats to the fullest, they are a great choice, just got a bit homesick so thought I should pop in and say g'day.
See many of the same topics coming through from the newbies, hope they are still being looked after by the old hands.

Keep checking in Bob.

It's nice to read that we are not forgotten by the dearly departed :D

Yeah miss the old girl and the many interesting discussions on here re mods etc, they are a great boat anybody thinking of selling should be very careful before taking the plunge, we had a great time and massive memories and photos travelling and exploring with a flexibility that absolutely no other boat in the world can provide.
It was time for us to sell but if our economic situation was different and the admiral was more into sailing it would still be here.

Yeah Thanks for that, as usual never really know what we are doing until we are doing it but this year we are attending a wedding at Airlie Beach early September and maybe another in Brisbane late September so thats all the plans except would like to visit the Roper River again but been attempting that for the last two years and never got closer than Burketown last year. :)

If we are coming down the coast will keep it in mind, haven't seen a Mac since we sold ours but never far from my thoughts when trying to make other things work as well.

Bob, always welcome.

'cept not from now 'till Easter..... flying to Perth for cheap holiday with kids 'n sailing home via Bali.

Apparently the on board attractions on Horizons are no match for a 140 000t cruise liner.

I will admit that the food is better, but it just isn't sailing.
