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.

Life at the Bluewater Marina

Bluewater Marina, Trinity Park, FNQ (Far North Queensland).
We have been here for a while now, I spend a lot of time down below in the air conditioning building web sites. Rose is working currently, part time via an agency. Enough earnings to pay the marina costs. Apart from the work etc, we have been to the movies in the big city (Cairns) a few times, we have also joined a local football club (Centrals, AFL) and had dinner there last night. Tuesday night is two for one night, so, after a decent meal and a couple of stubbies for the two of us, total cost of $20.50. Not bad and they picked us up and dropped us back at the marina when we were finished in their courtesy bus.
