Woodys On Tour – Hobart – Australian Wooden Boat Festival – Day 4
Hello Woodys – Day four of the trip, day 3 of the festival. As compared to yesterday (Saturday) it was a lot less crowded with less rubberneckers 🙂
I went on several guided walking tours of the docks, very insightful, as you inspect individual vessels and meet the skippers.
As promised today (Monday) story is a photo gallery of craft at the festival – no particular order, just as the camera found the boats. FYI – the festival organisers mix the vessels up, so you have sail/power/big/small all together, which makes for a good vibe.
Boat Of The Day – Green Moon
Check out the impressive berthing of the Tall Ship – Windeward Bound in the video below – well done skipper and woodys not being sexist – BUT I meet HER the other day.
And discovery of the trip Iron House Tasmania Ginger Beer (6%alc) and scallop wontons

That Carefree looks to be a nice example of a Ron Swanson design -like a number that were built here by the late John Lidgard
The launch 10 up from the bottom on the LH side with 4 portholes in the flare & a spacious bridgedeck & 2 masts with a sail on the front one & lots of flags, used to live at the Spit at the Gold Coast right by the Southport Macintosh Island bridge for many year in the1980s & 90s or longer perhaps longer, as I was living on Macintosh Island ,for 7 years in that era, & saw her every time I went over the bridge, which was virtually every day. I was told she had a Gardner Diesel at that time. — KEN R
