Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks cape man and Jeff. Rain is blessing Noosa's bushfire ravished landscapes today, so I've been in the shed easing back into working on Skinnydip, checking and re-tensioning as required the drive train, engine controls, hoses etc., :D http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87242/normal_post_...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Jaysen, OQ, Jeff and Fuzz. :D Like Jaysen said glad you are home safe and sound but sad the adventure is over. I'm feeling the same way. :roll: Returning to home port after months away cruising is always a great feeling. However there is always somewhat tedious work that must be done before y...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

We safely crossed the Noosa bar this morning. Nice to be snugged up in our home port again. Thanks to those of you who followed Great Sandy's voyage, and particularly those of you who posted. :D

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks cape man and Fuzz. :D We're aiming to cross the bar back into Noosa on king tides this coming Tuesday or Wednesday, sea state willing. Since the last post, we've been clawing our way northwards some 110 nautical miles from the Gold Coast to northwards to Mooloolaba (pic below) over three days...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

OK, after this morning's 7 day weather forecasts, Great Sandy in on a mission to grab what looks like favourable conditions to cross the Noosa River bar in a small window of favourable tides in a weeks time.
