Hmm, seems to be some sort of problem.
I did go back and edit the link after your first comment Gasolane. The link was copied from the TCR News item and maybe something dropped off, but it checked OK after I re-copied it. I'm just using Chrome on W10, nothing special.

But as per above comment, just go to TCR Australia web page and its right there as a news item.

Cheers.

Very famous pure white sandstone quarry is at Wondabyne, only accessible by rail or barge. We would mountain bike from Kariong, over Woy Woy rail tunnel (longest tunnel in the Southern Hemisphere) down along walking track to Wondabyne station. One of the few stations where you still hail the train to stop, to get back to back to Hawkesbury River Station.



Yacht has bilge keels so would sit on the bottom at lower tide while the finger berth would keep floating.
Beautiful place.

Youtube wise "Idiana diesel" has some great stuff too, he is "Bus Grease Monkeys' son. Dangar Stu went to the US and met them to learn more about Driptroits.

edit..... I can relate to Stu as years ago in my 20's I converted a wooden ex trawler into a liveaboard Hawksebury river cruiser, long before the "Net" I to taught myself wooden boatbuilding skills and fitting out.

Yep, Brisbane Waters National Park trails crisscross over the top of Woy Woy tunnel, train line is one of the busiest on the Eastcoast. I was going to build a houseboat but found an ex trawler was a better way to go.
Felix is a steel 30ft blue water yacht and we have sailed along the NSW coast. I later added a Tabernacle mast step so the mast folds down to go under bridges. Draft is 4ft beam 10ft.

Felix is currently laid up awaiting steel hull repairs in country Victoria 100 miles from the sea.

i won,t go in the tunnel then. maybe you have a bruce roberts boat? he does steel boat design. if you need fabrication and or welding advice/help, drop me a line.

if you want laugh or cry, check out SV Rusty Junk, ive never seen anything like it, pretty dangerous build, imo.

Yeah, I loved that sand rally series. The guy's commentary is pretty good.

On the 4th race I kind of went for RN3 due to 2x 2nds and I knew it was due for a win ;-)

5th race was so close, but rn3 did poorly. 6ths race was rn3 all the way so I was cheering for my guy
I miss motogp and f1 so much. When they're on it gets me interested week to week to keep on going, something for free to look forward to when there's not much good news or anything happening in my real life.

Then the last race was so close. My guy I picked by chance and as a fluke did well.

I've been refreshing a Sabre 22 for the last 8 months... got her on the water to learn how to sail last month, we got up to 11-12 knots in some dubious weather on the first trip with a mate. Took the wife and family for the second trip and pulled up at a deserted beach for a swim. Pure gold!

Thanks for the offer, appreciate it.

Swanny,
Really nice yacht mate. Only way to learn is to jump in and go, eh.

The city of Kangbashi in northern China is empty. Although its owners continue to make a profit by speculating on rising property values, the city – complete with towering apartment complexes and elaborate recreation centres – is almost completely uninhabited.

In car footage in the first one is great, the navigator is egging him on all the way.

many many years ago, i had a 1976 two door 1600 4sp escort. i used to flog the crap out of it around the back paddock. this one day i rolled it, and it nearly rolled completely upside down, then it rolled back onto its side. the car had a sunroof, and during the roll over i had to brace myself , i put my arms up against the roof , so as i didn,t fall through it. at that time, i was young and didn,t need a seat beat , thats because i was young and bullet proof.

so the car rolled back onto its side, i got out, some local kids that were watching me from the fence line ran over and we all lifted the car onto its wheels. i got in, didn,t lift the hood or any checks. turned the key, and engine starts , and away i go.
good old memory's.
