We received word from Kevin that "The Ambulance" aka Alfie II is on its way to its new home, Nimowa Island. It left last night on the freighter Pacific Harmony for Port Moresby via Brisbane.
Tracking aficionados will want to track it on its way with Marinetraffic.com - the picture on the left shows it off Port Macquarie this morning.. No doubt the full story of the delivery to Nimowa Island will unfold and there are bound to be a few stories to tell by the time Kevin, Ross and Keith return.
Well done Kevin (article) and everyone who helped that dream come true. May the PNG customs and Coral Sea Gods be with you.

With the winter cruising season coming to an end, we're seeing the return of some of our friends,Find out what is happening with Diomedea, Breakaway, Tezelia and Inez "below the fold".
Here is way to see where our cruising friends are "at a glance". Just go to the Currently Cruising page, where you'll see the location of all boats being tracked on Skipr on one screen.
For those interested in keeping in touch when away from the crowds, check out this article about Internet and phone access on the way North. All that, so you can let friends and family know where you are by starting a page for your boat!
Will they get to MacKay before Bounty Child's parts arrive?
Diomedea is still having lots of fun in the Pacific
Evening Star is exploring Magnetic North... or was it Magnetic Island?
