After 3 awesome weeks in Townsville it’s time to head back south Glenn showed his many sides professional brick layer, skilful barefooter, owner of various v8 craft not forgetting the 2 stroke jet ski and surprisingly his tree hugger side but I will let him tell you that story if you ever meet him over a beer? So I called in to Airlie Beach for a cruise and this surprisingly is where I have got the most attention with lots of people queuing up for a look and a chat the last three hung around asking if I was taking any crab pots with me etc could of been the Ian Barber 4 carton eski that made them think that way? The canoe photo is at Tinaroo on the Atherton Tabke ski boat paradise! Cheers

Ahoy all! Launched today at Mooloolaba for a cruzy cruise did out to sea at Point Cartwright as there was no surf but earlier went up the river way to the relevant photos for a second though I was in Europe but the weather convinced me otherwise!!!! Who would of thought we would have a water lock to take you to the next level of wealth and gin palaces!? On return from ramp usual interest when a Les says “Yeah I used to own a Chris Craft it was a Continental called Capri” I said are you sure? Yeah why? Just spent 3 weeks in Townsville with the owner of that boat! So I won’t bore you with the hour conversation and ph call to Glenn but a reminder of the small world we live in!

Tasmanian Wanderer,
'Twas reading on the google web about posting photos from iPad to forum. Make certain the iPad is in landscape mode with the home button to the right when photos are taken. Should then post right way up, maybe worth a try

Ahoy there (H)Andy person to know with full tool box and (H)Andy advice!!!

I have been posting photos from the phone mate, once posted they look fine from my end? But on computer its upside down but as has been suggested its no doubt the down under/down under scenario mate. I hope all good in sunny Balranald, bit quiet on the resto activity, will it be ready for Narranderra?

And 3 months later back at a now warm and sunny Yarrawonga with the lake full! So took Tomboy for a run in fresh water to end the tour for now but to be continued later in December this year.

Tomboy is entered in the wooden boat festival in Hobart February 2019 which will be her sixth, usual hospitality is offered to those who make the trip, cheers!

Survived the Boxing Day Harbour bonanza! In my opinion after “the experience “ best watched on TV if no boat was run over/run into and some one hurt I would be very surprised. Once race started every boat tried to keep up with the yatchs all crammed in behind a line with very little room to move, Tomboy is still charging well and I managed to cross the pack and get out of it and get back to ramp before low tide, to be continued New Yeats Eve! Cheers
