Hi all, due to my lack of understanding, I joined a thread and usurped brenton, a new comers thread so now I've figured it out, I've started my own thread. Sorry about that brenton.
My Woodie, The 'MJC', a 30 foot Line Launch was built in '64 in Townsville and is in original condition with the original Lister 36hp Freedom Diesel still going strong. She is now moored at the Gold Coast and used pretty well every weekend motoring over to Bum's Bay.
I need to slip her in the next month probably at Gold Coast Marina.
Cheers

Thanks for the welcome guys. FlyWright, yep, the forward cabin is full headroom. There's no bunks in the forward cabin though, it's all engine and storage. I'll see if I've got some photos to show.

She's a beaut!

I love the sound of those slow turning Listers.

That's a young person's boat. Reminds me, as a teenager, racing on my Dad's 29-foot sloop while being on the rail-less foredeck, fooling with the spinnaker boom. Somehow, I didn't fall overboard. Now, as a senior citizen, I prefer strong, tall railings and a wide, 360-degree deck.

I like some protection on the foredeck in rough weather too; But with that big hatch on bluecoast's boat, it seems he could just pop his head out and deal with the anchor without any need to dance on the deck.

If you slip her at GCCM look up Doug Fielding of Broadwater Marine. He3 and his brother are absolute good timber men.
These guys did all the timber work on my boat last haul out.
Whilst I was there "Noddy" was also up, she was one of Norman Wrights line launches from the Brisbane River.
Doug would just like to have a look at her as like me , these boys just love timber boats.
Have fun what ever your name is.
Cheers
Benn

Hi Auscan, I only really use her in the southern end of the Broadwater so it's generally all calm ish. Just had a great weekend in Bum's Bay, (Marine Stadium).

Hi Benn, I'll look those guys up tomorrow. I'm pulling her out on Wednesday at GCCM. The bilge pump pooped herself yesterday so I'll have to get it looked at.
Cheers mate, Jon.
