    She is a beautiful boat. She has very graceful lines.

    It was latterly on the Sunshine Coast, that would have been a potentially hair-raising and slow trip up from Tassie and across the Noosa bar !

    It still is up there from what I can gather. I reckon they would truck it down. That would be a fraught trip on the open ocean.

    Yes, I can't see it going to sea, but possibly it did make the journey north under its own power, but maybe not.
