OUR PROJECT BOAT - Ralfy and dad
In case you missed the boat, Ralfy IV
After back-loading Ralfy on a truck just before the Sydney boat show in late-July, our beloved boat is now at Maritimo’s sheds on the Gold Coast.
The boat’s father and builder, Bill Barry-Cotter, has already jumped aboard and began his mental plans.
Trade-a-Boat is now heading north for a meeting of minds and the ensuing planning of our rebuild project. Watch this space. We are about to get our hands dirty. — David Lockwood
