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!
I am just about ready to start the building process of My Belhaven 19! I am very excited about the project as I have wanted a boat like this for a few years now and just completed my workshop/boathouse to start building.
I have built some traditional wooden boats prior, but never have built stitch and glue and am a bit confused by the first steps. I have seen that there were a few people on here that have photo catalogged their build, but the posts were too old to see the pictures, etc. WOndering if anyone knows a good starting place.
