Re: Reserve Buoyancy, Flotation, swamping etc.

Not sure what a B20 weighs, but presumably about the same as my I563. The Investigator is a bit smaller, but carries about 150kg more ballast in the fixed keel. So I assume buoyancy requirements would be comparable. The Investigator will float fully swamped in an upright position due to the fixed ke...

Re: Spotted. TS's for sale on the net.

24' Converted keeler - $10,990 - Frankston VIC You would need to approach this one with caution as it is probably an "orphan". I suspect it is a Koala 24 keel boat, modified to have a "half keel" with drop down board within it. So it looks to be a similar arrangement to an Investigator 563 with a f...

Re: First post - Griffin gts17

Welcome Jules, Glad you are returning to sailing. Not sure if you are aware of "topping lifts" but installing one is very cheap and easy and you can then say goodbye to the boom collapsing into the cockpit. If your friend doesn't like the sailing part, she might be happier if you fit the topping lif...

CAL 14 - $3,900 - Hope island QLD


This is a later version of the design with the advantage of a forward hatch allowing access to the tiny foredeck, making anchoring and jib handling a bit easier.

Clipper 17 - $500 - Townsville QLD Wording is gibberish so I suspect this is the boat only and not including the tandem trailer it is pictured on. The trailer might be worth the money but the boat looks like a sand-pit. Anyway he needs it "gorn". https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/townsville/sail-boat...

16 inch Sportscraft - $5,000 neg. - Crafers SA This is a "wanted" ad. but probably really a "for sale" ad. No details and no motor mentioned. being only 16 inches long, it might be a tight squeeze in the cabin. :roll: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/crafers-west/sail-boats/16-sportscraft-yacht/1201...

Re: Mast raising pole

A silly question: The gin pole is kept roughly at a 90 degree angle to the boat deck by the self-adjusting stays. The mast surely needs the most side support when it is almost vertical but the shrouds have not yet tightened up. So other than the connection point between the mast base and the gin pol...

Re: Coast Guard Supporter Membership

I think that volunteer groups wax and wane depending on the availability of sometimes just a few key people. Our Landcare group struggles along on a shoestring and I know some Gippsland ones do too. It would only take a couple of resignations for the group to fall over. With the increasing retired p...
