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.

Port Newry

Anchored off Newry Island, a great place, totally sheltered and very scenic.

Mackay Marina

Well, it's raining and blowing and we are in the marina at Mackay. When the wind abates and rain stops we will be heading north to Port Newry.

Curlew Island Anchorage

One of the nicest anchorages so far. Flat water, nice views. But the best overall was Hunter Island, it was dead calm, no roll and no other boats.

Ghost Ship

This image was taken 0.2 of a mile away, range given by radar as this ship only became visible to the eye at 0.3 of a mile away. This is the second pea soup fog we have encountered since leaving Scarborough.

Sunset in the Great Sandy Straits

Had a great sail from the Scarborough Marina across the Wide Bay Bar and into Garry's Anchorage for the night ( Sunday). Monday night saw us anchored off Bookar Island then up in the morning for a radar assisted sail through the dense fog into Hervey Bay and onto Bundy. Arrived in the Burnett River, Bundaberg and anchored outside the Bundaberg Port Marina last night, Tuesday. In the Marina today for a couple of days rest etc.
