David and Rose's cruising life aboard our cruising yacht Quinco.
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.
Well, here we are again (still) with two cyclones been and gone, Charlotte on the 12th of January and Ellie on the 1st of February, the weather bureau is forecasting the possibility of another forming around Cairns on Thursday the 5th of Feb 2009. Let's hope it also fizzles out nice and quickly and leaves us alone in the marina with the other boaties hoping for the same!
