    Hi Graham,

    congratulations on the sale of Arion!!

    Is the catamaran you were looking at still for sale? Are you still interested in her or have your priorities changed?

    I hope to see you again when I return to Russell Island in late May or early June.

    All the best, David.

    Hi Zane.  I am sure Aron would sell in NZ easily, though I am not up to ocean sailing at the moment (always the optimist, I hope my health is going to improve).  However, I can now say that I have sold Arion.  I sold him to a friend who now has the distinction (I am pretty sure) of being the only person in the world to own two junk-rigged Tom Thumb 24s.  The other one, Minke (which I wrote up as a BOTM some time ago) is in storage in Fiji, while Don has had to come back to Australia for a couple of years.  Because I was selling so cheap (less than 10K) he decided to buy Arion and live aboard for the time he is back in Australia.  I assume he will sell again later.  I now have to deliver the boat 200 miles south to the Clarence River.  Along the way I am looking at fibreglass boats.  I was thinking of moving ashore but cannot face that yet.  I can just tie the glass boat up in a marina and live aboard without worrying about rot or rust when I become too frail, though I hope to keep pottering around for a while yet.

    Thats great news. So glad Arion found a buyer. Good luck with the delivery and future purchase.
