I tell a lie...One old American Monk timber trawler offered for sale in WA, USA, had a whopping great wheel-house added, I could have bought that Monk for a song but that wheel-house put me right of buying the boat.
I think I'll forget about the old west Aus boat and bid my time till I can get away to look at a few motor-sailors in New Zealand, I have several on my list, all are original and all are on offer for a lot less than the modernised west oz boat.

Thanks again for you advice on the boat,

Mate I'm in Perth if you need help. Just MSG me :-)
