Title: G3 Glasspar arrives in Melbourne
Post by: Chair on October 20, 2018, 01:36:31 PM
Hello all, It's been a long time since I've been active, but I have the bug (again) I have been looking for a G3 for ages having missed out on the only Victorian specimen that strangely vanished from its home in Newcomb Geelong some years ago. A board member found this on Gumtree in Perth WA and I purchased it for $500. It was stored over there for a few years but I had it transported early this year to Melbourne. It is in surprisingly good condition (solid) and the fittings are included. The motor came off my Stylecraft that I sold some years ago and I wacked it on to transport the lot to its new home on Flinders Island. It is now in Bridport Tasmania after travelling across on the Spirit and then it will catch another ferry to Flinders Island. I am relocating full time to Flinders Island where I will give the rig a total rebuild. I hope to inform you all of its progress

G'day Dave and Neil,
I've been off the radar for quite sometime. Had a great holiday in NY in October, even visited Washington DC for the day! What a lovely place that is.

As for your G3, wow finally... she is with you, I bet you can't wait to rig her.  Do you have suitable boating areas for that hull down at the Island?

MERCMAN.
