Bill, let us know how the Nimbus inspection goes. Should be nice on Lake Macquarie this weekend.
With Integrity, I saw the issue as more finish level than construction.
The Alaska, from up your way, is in a different price range. Looks like a trawler but will plane. I wish they had a semi displacement hull and less power.

It's also green right return, not red right return. Everything is opposite down under.

That "red right returning" and "red right rising" become so ingrained up here that when back down under in the Bay of Islands recently it felt so unnatural for "red right leaving"

Thats why those adjustable red green guides that some use on their helm are so helpful at times.

Intervale II: actually Red to Red Returning is the International standard...it is the USA that is the odd-man-out, I think.

That left me still wondering so I checked Wikipedia.
Andy, it just means using a 24 clock, not a 12 hour one.

You are right Paul. Under international rules of the sea, that is how it goes. If that is not the rule in the US, then it's them that's out of step.

Hi From Melbourne / Paynesville Australia

Just signed up ! We are berry interested in timber cruisers and have been cruising he Gipplsland Lakes for a few years now. Just recently refurbished our 40' timber cruiser and looking forward to the warmer weather down south. I'll post some pics when I can get a chance as I know everyone likes photos. I'm looking forward to drilling down into some of the forum threads as anyone with a timber boat knows it's all about maintenance and upkeep and advice and experience from knowledgeable people is crucial. Anyway looks like a great sight and I look forward to getting amongst it and getting yo know you all.

Greetings, Jason. You will find this place interesting. Suggest you search and look at Tidahapah threads by Benn, as he has timber boat, presently under refit at the Gold Coast City Marina. See 'Tidahapah refit' thread on the list on the right even as we speak.
Lot's of timber boat stuff on them.

Will do, thanks. just cutting our teeth on the current cruiser with the hope of stepping up to a costal cruiser possibly an ex-trawler conversion or Grand Banks.

The Nimbus inspection went well. Very nice boat. Made an offer which was countered, we then went half way, stalemate.

Meantime, we found a Storebro 435 on the Gold Coast. Did the due diligence, made an offer and we now own a beautiful ship. Much bigger than I anticipated but I have handled her with ease, even had my 1st mate at the helm and she managed to berth her on my jetty at home.
We have had our maiden voyage last weekend to Peel Island, Bribie island and Tangalooma, spread over three days and had a ball. We have all sorts of ideas and dreams about where to go in the future but will keep gaining experience between here and Moreton Bay for a few months yet.
I think I would like to cruise in company first long trip so we will be on the lookout for like minded boaties

Cheers
Benn

Congratulations Bill. You must have a Scandinavian affinity.
I have seen a Storebro online, tried to inspect one in Sydney but the broker was useless. From memory, big interior space, lots of timber inside, elevated helm. How about some pics?
Volvo engines?
I think "Tiku", who recently posted on the "Tolleycraft" thread has one, we were discussing the merits of Folkboat yachts,(major thread drift!).
Hope you continue to enjoy her.

Storebro435

Hey mate, search the above link for info on the boat. I tried to upload a photo not sure it worked.
It has twin 370hp Volvos, super charged turbos. It gets along ok but is very thirsty when pushed. Most economical and comfortable at 8 - 12knots but will do 30 if I need it.Equiped with everything that opens and shuts and well set up for long cruises.
We have 1000 later fuel capacity, 400 later water & water maker, freezer, etc etc.
Bill
