John has sold his creation.  After assisting with the build and member of the 117 day cruise, I'm sad to see her go, but wish John and his Family all the best in the future.  
Thank you John for letting me be a part of the whole experience.

Greetings from a mooring at Nelson Bay, Port Stephens up the coast from Sydney,
Last night moored at Refuge Bay - an arm of the Hawksbury River - just up the coast from Sydney - idyllic - a secret spot with a waterfall and no trace of humans on shore just 12 nm up from Sydney. A great night in a beautiful Aussie setting - well maybe - ask Thomas and Fraser about the spider, and the plaque about the Krait (P Keeley knows).
This morning we set off for Coffs Harbour - home of the CEO - the sea was roughish - the wind was blowing 25 from behind - all looked good until the SM started thinking - up to CH back to Port Stephens - maybe an option is - say whip into PS and stay there!
Done deal - all agreed or were strong armed - the end result is
