The 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!
Greetings 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
