Our first article for 2019 was published in the January 2019 issue of Cruising Helmsman! What a cracking way to start the new year! This relates to a few of our Outer Reef escapades and our learnings about the ideal conditions for hassle free anchoring and snorkeling at the reef.
After spending nearly three weeks working on Anui we finally left The Boat Works on 20 January to start our long awaited shake down cruise to Port Macquarie.
Six weeks after we listed her online, Take It Easy is sold. We did well, particularly since there was the festive season in the middle of this period!
It is really hard to make your mark when the boat you have acquired is so aligned to your own taste, so close to what you would choose if you had constructed it yourself. How do you to it? Do you need to do it? Who is making a mark on whom?
Moving boat is like moving house! Lots of packing, lots of cleaning up, the mixed emotions of closing a chapter and beginning a new one. And as with a house move, there is also a change of address!
A couple of posts ago we dropped our bombshell about hoping to have found a successor to our beloved Take It Easy. Well after the longest two weeks ever we are delighted to announce we are the very proud owners of Anui, a 52ft (15.9m) Crowther with dagger boards.
The time has come for us to take the next leap in our sea wanderers’ life. We are sad but excited to offer our distinctive Take It Easy for sale.
