Farewell Myuna II

My boat (Myuna II) sank this afternoon.

I’m not sure why – we’d had a lot of rain and the marina manager said she went down pretty fast.

A salvage crew is going to try to get her out of the water tomorrow.

We had a lot of fun on that old boat – sailing many times to Moreton Island, and I’m really sad to see her go like this.

She was built in 1967 and did a circumnavigation of the world in the early 70’s. Pretty amazing for such a small vessel. Ironic that she could go all the way round the world, and still end up under water in a marina after a moderate storm.
