Email sent, together with Sydney contact info for Ken & Patty kindly supplied by local TF member "Oogachaka in Sydney"(Brian). I sent info on the "Dauntless" voyage too, and invited David Lockwood to view both threads on TF.

Arrived Sydney
No comments · Posted by Alan in Trips

8/27/14 ”We made it to Sydney and were at the Customs and Border Protection dock by 8:00 a.m. local time. Three hours and almost $500.00 later we were officially checked in and we headed back out to go north about 16 miles to Pittwater, where our broker Andrew greeted us out in the ocean in 4 meter swells and 25 plus knots of wind in a 40 foot inflatable to lead us in to our mooring. Then he went to fetch his work boat for us to use to get back and forth to shore and showed us where the Yacht Club was to get something to eat. He also loaned us a WiFi stick to use. It certainly feels like we are in good hands with Andrew. We just got back in the dark but easily found OOGACHAKA which her blue LED lights guiding us. We are going to crash for the night and regroup tomorrow. Glad this part of the trip is behind us – way too much wind and waves for too many days in a row.”

Yeah!!! Another courageous crossing of the Pacific. I can't wait to hear the details of their arrival, but meanwhile, another candidate for Capt. Cojones award.

Heal-given that both accomplishments are by fellow KK's, maybe it should be Kaptain Kojones!

Kan you imagine the krap that would result from that?

What a great story!
Makes me very optomistic of my future voyages if I 58 or more footer.
Interestingly one of the boats I have looked at some is a KK 58.

They were selling Oogachaka in Australia a year or so ago. Don't know if it ever sold. Apparently getting to Aussie was their dream and once realized, the boat was history.

It sold but took a large price reduction and over a year. Few people here recognize the brand, despite KK exhibiting at the 2014 Sydney Boat Show,with a local TF member`s beautiful KK48. Another local TF member wanted to buy it but was voted down by his wife. Maybe the possibility it had taken a hammering en route was a consideration.

No aux engine, just a single Lehman 120.

I think one KK42 on TF has an aux engine with its own prop.

I believe Bay Pelican has that set up.
