Catch is - it only has one day to run... But it might suit someone looking for a cheap holiday home :-)

Bugger :?
Wrong time otherwise I would have that, would be best of both worlds for me at the moment.
Sigh I can only hope it doesn't go and it gets re-listed in a couple of weeks or so, then maybe I can 8)
Don't like my chances but :!: :!: :?: :?:

Can only echo the "Bugger"!!!

Was down there. My boat is stored at the same place. Could have had a look!!! Would make a very intersting weekender!

Will see if it is still around next week when I go down and see if I can get a look.

So I love boats, anything wrong with that :twisted:
At least I could be sailing this one by the sounds of it, and you of all people know what it's like don't you, lack of time and money - not always at the same time :wink:

At that price I could have almost sold the Jedda and replaced it!

Does it actually float and sail???

It might have gone for a very good price - but most of us would need a new car/truck to do anything about moving it, and a big bugger at that! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes it would have, but that could have been arranged 8) just a shame it was up now, a little bit longer down the track and I will be honest I would have given it a shot.

Like I said and still think it, lot of boat for the $$s would be awesome in Moreton bay and/or the Sandy Straits.

I would have thought a few of the TSPers that sail Gippsland Lakes might have grabbed shares in it.

Never mind, there's a nice Careel 22 for $15k and a Sabre. And a few other interesting boats.

I just wish I had seen it sooner to let you guys have a fair chance at it. Sorry :-(
I was looking for something else when I found the thing.

Hey Ross,

It was not the time that was the issue (well other than it was there now) it was pure and simple a cash issue right now, another few weeks or so it may have been very different and I would have done it for sure, even at higher than 12,500 it would have still been a good buy 8)

O well was not to be :?

If that boat is the same one, Kim & I marvelled at the sheer size of it about 4 years ago, one afternoon when, the local shipwright was launching it at the Slip Rd Jetty in Paynesville - it dwarfed our Seaway - it was HUGE. (about 7-feet longer!) It had been imported by the owners from NZ and had suffered some damage to the C/B case / C/B area in transit to Aus, which had duly been repaired just prior to the launch we witnessed. After that launch it seemed to drop off the radar until right now.
It would appear the repairs went well.
