North of capricorn - Dampier Archipelago

Welcome aboard my little boat 'Nimiane' as I cruise the outer islands of the Dampier Archipelago in the northwest of Western Australia.

For those interested, William Dampier landed here (Jan 1688) and explored in his "accidental" 12 year circumnavigation of the globe - some 80 years before the more celebrated James Cook.

Nice part of the world.
So this is obviously not you parked in front of us this morning.

I see yours is double ended vs this with a squared off transom.

That boat moves through the water very efficiently. Enjoy the ride.

Hi Simi,
That is the 7 mtr version, it has no forward cabin unlike mine and the squared off back prevents him having a very useful spare anchor and chain locker / etc. aft.
I did meet a fellow out in Cobar N.S.W. when I was trailering her back to W.A. who had one like that with the optional mast also. Useful he said as a steadying sail but could not point beyond square to the wind.
Nimiane now has rolling chocks and the improvement is beyond expectation, I would say conservatively at 50%. She goes like it's on rails and still as agile.

Brett - I'm glad that the rolling chocks have worked out well for you. A rolling ride gets old fairly quickly.

Have you taken up full time residence up there in the NW?

Hey Steve,
How's that beautiful boat of yours doing.....getting lots of 'cuddles' .
Not taken up residence in the N.W., back here in Perth for a spell.
Got the NBN. forced on me - or the phone was gunna get cut off, so now got the scintillating speed of 11.5gbs. LOL
Anyhow makes posting a video on T.F. not a lifetime event anymore.

I think I will post the making and installing of my 'el cheapo' rolling chocks for Brisyboy and I know you also wanted to see the finished product.

Just watching Paul Kelly concert outside the Opera house in Sydney on telly, damn he is SO HOTT...........

King Bay, Dampier

This was one of the few evenings I was not on board 'Nimiane'
The view is from the Hampton Harbour Boat and Sailing Club a few hours after Richmond won the flag.
We rejoiced late that evening

You won’t need your tooling chicks on water this calm.

I looked at the first video on this thread again. It appears that your dinghy throws a bigger wake than your slippery mothership.
