Cruising Myall Lakes in the CS20#3
Drew posted a topic in Boating & Crusing StoriesThe Myall Lakes are a series of freshwater/brackish lakes situated in a National Park to the North of Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia. The lake system has long been a favourite haunt for trailer sailers and a few "hot water boats". It is best suited to boat camping although there are a few areas where camping ashore is permitted with boat access. Over the recent Easter break my wife and I joined old acquaintances from the Newcastle Hunter Trailer Yacht Association and did a little cruising. Most of their boats range from 23 to 26 foot, but the Coresound held its own and attracted many positive comments. Here are a few pics so you too can enjoy the experience as you come out of your northern winter. Here we are with the big cousins A little untidy - having too much fun, but here is our little galley and chart area. Bath water provided free! And then there was the trip home to Canberra!
Belhaven or CS 20 Mk 3
BrentK posted a topic in B & B Yachts ForumGreetings from Australia. I have had the Belhaven plans for some time without commencing my build. Now I see the CS 20 Mk 3 and see many advantages with water ballast and the raised deck design. I have read all the comments about the Belhaven cabin (eg. Scott's descriptions) and it is what I want, and assume the CS 20 cabin is much smaller as it's not designed as a cruiser. If comfort is more important than speed to me, should I just build the Belhaven as is, as I am sure the design works extremely well? Or, with the more advanced features of the CS Mk3 design, should I build one of those and modify the cabin to be more cruiser-oriented? Then of course, there's the P22, but that's in a different league I believe. Thanks all - keep building. Brent
