Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Great Sandy returned to Noosa on November 1st after a relaxing 6 month cruise to and from Lizard Island in Far North Tropical Queensland, Australia. It was nice having enough time to be able to passage when the weather was favourable, or hole up and read or eat, drink and entertain when it was not. ...
