Another memorable trip , its always welcomed to cruise in company and share the experience.
Similar long passages to 2014 may and june trips each on or over 30 nm

the "lay day" in queenscliff was a welcome rest in what was a busy few days

There are always interesting things to see along the way , no exception was the unusual place this seal chose to sunbake in the middle of the bay ……..

continued,

look closely.......

The two of us enjoyed the informal match racing along the legs which does wonders to fine tune sail configurations over varying conditions with over 90 nm it is safe to assume we know a little more about our boats

Confidence was that high that on leaving queenscliff farnzy carried his mainsail out the cut , which secured him the much prized perpetual "festered nut" trophy , presented with much ceremony during sundowners on return.

Max please excuse my overlooking your previous post :oops:

6.8knts woohoo.

Yes thats not unusual we had a close reach and were tide assisted …. in fact we were in quite shallow water and throwing sheet to slow down in case I hit the bottom

Did I see right that you have a cutter rig. 2 jibs up?

Yes i like to set a staysail on the inner forestay as i believe it works on the slot between the genoa and mainsail with improved performance

Also, did you reverse that starter motor? How hard was it in the end?

There seems little need to alter the starter direction , it along with the ezi rollers made for a sub 45 second retrieval with virtually no effort …such a pleasure.
Instead of having another soul to help i had them video the event so i could later check the process …and no help needed :D

Just in regard to that starter motor. We had that long chat about reversing. So in the end did you wrap the strap around the drum in reverse? How did you get around that problem?

Cheers for all the replies sounds like you had a great trip good fun

Has anybody out there got a copy of that magazine?

Off topic a little, can you tell me how you cooked your beef mussaman, did you use heat beads or a cobble stone, if the former how many and for how long.
I have a Cobb premier with the frying dish/wok and wonder how you cooked on a low slow heat.
Festered Nut Award, like that, we used to have a DH award given out weekly for those who made the biggest error of judgement (who filled the diesel van with unleaded?) until some females in the depeartment decided it was sexist and objectionable and had it stopped, it was a great morale booster and worked really well.

hi bligh
5 heat beads
i put all the ingredients in a casserole dish
place the dish on top a small type trivet above the heatbeads
i usually expect it to be ready anytime after 2.5 hours
sometimes i will get it out and put on the kettle other times i will leave it in till the beads finish
i cook the rice on the metho stove 1 rice 2 water by volume when the water has gone rice is ready
i cook extra rice which goes into the casserole dish with the leftovers put it in the esky then reheat it the next day
be sure you have sour cream and dried shalliots to finish off the dish

Thanks, I shall work around that with a suitable dish/casserole :D
I was thinking wok but that looks good.
Nothing like a good curry any time.
