We all know beautiful girls open doors that would otherwise remain closed. Now that Skinnydip has opened the door for you I say take full advantage :wink:
I am sure it was just an accident you let Skinnydip strut her stuff right in front of Noosia boating crowd :roll:

Thanks Jaysen, Eric, Lee and Fuzz. :D

There has been welcome rain here in Noosa today, so no boating, just reading, and a relaxing lunch.

Over lunch, the child bride opined that I'd got Skinnydip to a useful pause point, that it was way past time for us to once again cruise in Great Sandy southwards for 2-3 months, and that she'd been patiently bidding her time while I got Skinnydip's propulsion problems sorted. Then she suggested that I delay fine tuning Skinnydip's performance until we returned.

I've readily agreed. Happy boating wife, happy boating life. :D

Between rain squalls late this afternoon I went and checked Skinnydip's mooring lines, and lingered a while, admiring her lines. Thanks JM!

She looks great GB - a superb job. Are you going to leave her on a mooring for 2-3 months? I would imagine she'd be in danger of being molested by all the pelicans and seagulls in the area.

Mrs GB and Great Sandy have gracefully allowed you to spend time with the saucy little tart. They now desire your full attention. You are defiantly living a life well lived. Please take us along on this journey also. :D

Enjoy the cruise. The ongoing saga of Skinnydip will wait till your return. All I ask is that the thread includes years of adventure in the first ST21 ever made. She's a masterpiece to inspire others. I can see this design plying the shores and back waters of Florida and turning heads everywhere you go.

I do want to especially see the first load of oyster shell on that deck... 8)

Thanks for you cruising well wishes Fuzz and cape man. We're aiming to get out over the Noosa bar on the high ties towards the end of the month. Fingers crossed that the weather gods present us with a moderate sea state and winds.

She's back in the build shed now while we cruise. After we return, she'll have protective cover made up before she's placed in the drink full time.

Today I got a memory stick copy of the two phone videos of the test runs done last week. I've just posted them on youtube.
