G'day, Thanks for all the help. Amazing the depth of knowledge available if you know who to ask. I will let you know the choice when it is made. The boat will be available for charter through Seabbatical, so any expressions of interest should be sent to them, or me. May even be some early bird discounts available. ;-) Actually, if there is any interest, I could talk to the owner about the first charter/delivery being a bunch of people from this list. regards, Rob On Sat, Mar 29, 2008 at 10:28 AM, Doug Haines <doha720@yahoo.
