About the boat "Quinco"

Quinco is an Adams 40 skippered by David and crewed by the Admiral, Rose. Quinco is a wishbone cutter rigged sloop. She was built in Fremantle in 1978. Sailed to the Cocos Islands then moved home port to Pittwater, from there, onto Melbourne then we are where we are, cruising that is! Constructed from "Airex" foam core sandwiched GRP with a ply deck, she weighs in at 12 Tons. Powered by a Nanni 4 cylinder 50 HP diesel engine.

Heading South, soon!

We have rested and done some more provisioning for Quinco's short trip South. We will be heading into Hervey Bay and into the Great Sandy Straits, exiting the Straits through the Wide Bay Bar and then onto Mooloolaba. We will be catching up with friends there so will spend a day or two at Mooloolaba then head further South to our marina berth in the Scarborough Marina. That will be the end of our cruising for this season, a bit of work on the boat will follow and some paid work to pay for it all. Next season? Who knows? Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.
