Having crossed Bass Strait 6 times on its way to and from Tasmania, Menindee has proved her seaworthiness and the reliability and economy of her Yanmar motor.
What a joy it has been to bring her South and to explore both the east and west coasts of the wonderful island state. A quick trip up to Pittwater with a few mates only added to our sea loving adventures in her.
She took 2 years to build with a team of 1-3 people working on her. Mark Abbott’s boat building knowledge and skills led to a beautifully designed, strong seaworthy boat that with, a little TLC, will be around for the next 50 years. I expect to own her for another 10 years or so then to pass her on to the next adventurer.
