The "Scruffie" Taxman

Simon, the taxman from Canberra, was back on the river in his beautiful lugsail yawl Stornaway which he built himself from a kit available from Scruffie Marine.

He spent five days on the river, overnighting at anchor off Little Island just downriver from "Riverbend".

Simon, would you like to join the Nelligen Yacht Club? Our membership already includes a Kraut and a Greek, so a taxman would hardly be noticed.

We also talked about The Riddle of the Sands, Simon. Here is the German movie which features a far more traditional boat than the English version.

Good-bye, Hanna and Rikka! We wish you a safe trip home and perhaps we will see you again one day!

Shades of New Guinea

A quiet evening at "Riverbend". The television is off and I pretend I am back in the wilds of New Guinea with just a kerosene lamp and a good book.
