Some dodgey pictures from the Paris end of Port Phillip Bay

Postby percyverhance » Sat Aug 09, 2014 4:00 pm

Have just spent 4 very relaxing days on Port Phillip Bay.Got some nice light weather sailing in,bumped in to several other Top Hatters and got a few boat jobs done.
Here are a few dodgey pics for those unfamiliar with the top end of PPB.

There was very little wind on Monday so I motored from St Kilda over to Williamstown to catch up with a couple of mates that had been out fishing.And to check out some boat porn at the Willy mooring area.Sea Shepherd has the Bob Barker and the Sam Simon moored here for some time.They are crewed by volunteers and there always seems to be work going on.I havent seen the Steve Irwin for quite awhile.

I headed up through the mooring area at Willy and bumped into John of Sombrero who was spending some time on his MK2.We made our acquaintance and had a valuable chat about Top Hats and stuff.I believe i also spotted Genda being towed in to start her make over project.

I was originally planning to head up to the Docklands for the night but as time was getting on decided instead to head back to St Kilda for a pizza with anchovies and lots of garlic on it.As it happened i bumped into Steve from Toodiloo who was doing some work on his MK3.We made loose arrangements to catch up the following day for a sail.I headed into St Kilda for a pizza with anchovies and lots of garlic on it. :D

Caught up with Steve the following morning and both set up a No.1 headsail. Conditions varied from dead calm to a very light breeze.It was pretty neat to sail with another Top Hat.

Hi Dave
Genda is back in the water, hope she's not sinking.
Did a lot of work on the old girl making planing for the next slip already. Bloody boats looking forward to having some fun on her.
I hope to be out on the bay Monday Tuesday for a sail if your about give me the heads up.
When they slipped Genda back in they used the same cradle to slip Kevins Wayward Lady out.
Cheers Martin
