An update on Royce’s work, and it is looking fine. Next stop, photos of the new boat being sailed, I hope.
Getting very close to a sail, lovely work. [By Royce Powe, Keppel Bay, Queensland, 5 September 2017]
Well it has been a very long time between drinks, but here is a new build Queensland boat! What’s that, about 45 years since the last one you say?
Congratulations to Royce on taking the plunge, and we are looking forward to seeing it on the water.

Those Queenslanders sure were masters at moving boats! One on the roof, one in the boot and one on the trailer out the back. [By unknown, QLD, mid 1960’s]
That’s the way to do it! You can’t move boats around this way anymore. [By unknown, QLD, mid 1960’s]
Five! on a 6 x 4 box trailer, with room for one more on the other side! [By unknown, QLD, mid 1960’s]
