Re: tb/AMEL owner or AMEL familiar professional near COOMERA QLND AUSTRALIA/AYOG
Thanks for your Email. Hope all is well with you guys.
I remember us talking last year about the new sails; you gave me suggestions & recommendations on AUSTRALIAN Marina’s etc. based on which I selected THE BOAT WORKS YARD. Excellent place by the way.
Appreciate your offer but as you expected (and have probably read) Sue & Brian MITCHELL are daily in AMELIT’s vicinity on the same yard and I am in dialogue to see what we can work out.
I have some other questions and will send you an Email directly (not via the Forum) but that will be later this week as I am leaving early tomorrow morning and will have spotty or no internet for 2 or 3 days.
Best Regards Teun

Let's see if you find anyone closer first, but if not then I could potentially help. The only issue with me is that I am around 100km away, up in Scarborough, and I don't really have any other reasons to go down that way normally. At present here in QLD, we are virtually COVID19 free, so I can travel down there without restrictions at present, as and when my work commitments allow me time to do so.
Presently I am looking after other international owners boats here in Scarborough Marina, and also assisting one international owner to sell his boat too, which is relatively very easy to do since it is right on my normal morning walk route. If you (or any other future Amel owners sailing into Australia later this year) had it here in Scarborough or Newport Marina's in the north of Brisbane, then that would be far easier for me to assist, however, as we discussed back in October, having it out the water at Boatworks should also certainly give you good peace of mind that it does not need new antifoul paint, wearing bearing replacements and also lines to be checked weekly.
As you probably know I owned an Amel Super Maramu 2000 for 9 years, and just last year completed a circumnavigation in that but sold SV Island Pearl II recently on our return, so am completely familiar with all the specific maintenance requirements, and am also very familiar with the 54 too.
See if you get any offers from anyone closer first, but if not I would be happy to help as and when my time permits.
