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.

Maclean NSW after traffic disruption on the Pacific Highway!

We have the "Green Light" to proceed, hope there's no road rage with the motorists waiting for us slow boats to get under the bridge!

                                                                                       Welcome Swallow under the Harwood Bridge. Quinco is next!

Well, it was a while ago we left Gladstone, since then we have moved down the coast to Bundy, Sandy Straits, Mooloolaba, Lucinda Bay, Horseshoe Bay, Bums Bay, Iluka and now in Maclean before leaving for Coffs Harbour when the weather improves. To get here from Iluka, we go up the Clarence River and under a bridge which takes the traffic on the Pacific Highway. We had to book to get the bidge opened, 24 hours notice is required for this traffic disruption!
