Wow! What an adventure it has been for me and my little ship up the east coast of Australia . I have spent a week on a deserted island with only myself and the mozzies for company. Then onto Middle Percy island that is legendary amongst cruisers.
I have met some awesome people along the way and had some great sailing too. In fact the best speed I got out of Honey Badger was13.2 knots.a friend has just done the trip on a Farrier and could only match that speed.
To cut a long story short I am now in the Pioneer river Australia and have met another wharram enthusiast who has quickly become a firm friend. We have struck a deal that basically means my boat for his Narai.The reasons are convoluted but his acquiring a Roberts 34 ft yacht for free means he has plenty enough on his plate.
The Narai is on the hard.She needs a lot of work but is sound below the waterline.There is some rot but nothing a bit of epoxy and ply won't fix. it just so happens that my mate ha access to more epoxy than you can throw a stick at.
I will be approaching this renovation from a different angle to the building of Honey Badger. Reclaimed materials and a crab claw rig are on the cards.
