Pelorus Island island is a fishermans’ and boating dream.The property also comes with a fully equipped workshop, a 4×4 tractor and 6.3m Dale boat, beach trailer and 5hp reduction winch on the island along with a road trailer located at Dungeness near Lucinda. “The lease is 30 years (automatically renewable at 85 per cent of expired term) and still has 29 years to run,” Mr Pascoe said.“It is for residential purposes only but buyers are able to build new additional accommodation but may not operate as a resort.” Could this be North Queensland’s best beach-side home?“History is that it was part of the Coral Princess Cruise operation with weekly visits from the boat on its Cairns, Hinchinbrook Channel/ Palm group/Barrier Reef five-day cruise,” he said.“The Coral Princess Cruise business was sold to Singaporean interests who didn’t want the island, as their concentration is now on the Kimberleys, thus the owner now has no use for it and the managers are retiring to Mackay.” This stunning and spacious Pelorus Island property could be all yours.IF you’ve ever dreamt of escaping to an island, here’s your chance.Pelorus Island’s only residential property is being offered to the market for the first time with the 30-year residential lease covering 4040sq m of prime ocean frontage and exclusive access to one of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park’s most stunning offerings — accessible only via private boat or helicopter.This archipelago is widely acknowledged by the boating community as among the best, and most unpopulated, boating destinations in the world, says listing agent James Pascoe.

Fully furnished with unfettered access to all the natural and untouched beauty of the island, this residence has a sprawling veranda at front with sweeping views to the ocean and surrounds just metres from the water.The self-sufficient residence is fully powered by solar with large battery storage systems and dual backup generators on site. Pelorus Island is heaven on earth.Due to its unique positioning, only 17km east of Lucinda, the property has already attracted the interest of numerous buyers, both locally and nationally.“There has been significant local interest from individuals plus syndicates of five or six members looking to use for, say, two months each,” Mr Pascoe said.“Nationally we have had nearly 100 what we regard as reasonably serious inquiries.“We have fielded offers in the $1.2 million to $1.5 million range but we had thought it might be worth circa $2 million.”

The property sold to a woman who walked in during the first open home.“I think we would still have it on the market if they didn’t do this,” Jade said.“We pretty much broke even. The idea was to get it sold when we weren’t even getting offers on the table before.”The couple have since bought their dream property — acreage an hour out of Brisbane while Jade’s parent have bought acreage an hour out of Toowoomba.“It’s the dream lifestyle we wanted. It’s just amazing what they did. It definitely changed my life.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK BEFORE: The old outdoor entertainment space.

We had one offer for less than what we bought it for two years before which was also subject to the sale of their home.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p216p216p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

When a young couple couldn’t afford to buy a house on their own, their parents pitched in to go halves — but with a growing family, and the market moving on, they called in the Selling Houses Australia experts to help them move on.The family were facing the brutal reality of their home not getting a single offer despite being on the market for months when Andrew Winter, Shaynna Blaze and Charlie Albone walked in.The real estate expert, interior designer and landscaper were confronted with a three bedroom, two bathroom highset that had the look of needing lots of little jobs done to get into top shape — and they transformed it with their team in just three days. AFTER: The space modernised and usable. The home was “dated and lacking personality” with lots of different floor types and the garage wasn’t enclosed “so it felt unfinished”. The transformation team got to work, putting in the essentials like a laundry “in the right spot”, building a second bathroom downstairs, enclosing the garage and putting an internal door from there to the house.“It was beautiful. The whole house was beautiful,” Jade said. “Just how they can look at a space and think up a design to make it more functional is amazing. It was an odd layout to our house — they made it bigger, brighter and more modern.”

Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title MOST READ “It’s just you against another person,” Reisek said. “So close. You’re gripping their hands and you feel their power. You feel their everything, coming through their hand into yours.”Founded in 2014, the WAL held five tournaments around the country this year, leading up its Atlanta finale featuring the season’s top competitors. The matches were streamed live over the Bleacher Report app, though there are hopes that the sport will find more mainstream exposure and acceptance.As arm wrestling grows, drug testing is an issue that must be addressed.While the league has a policy against performance-enhancing substances, it is merely based on the honor system. Kaplan said some form of drug testing will be introduced for the 2019 season, but it’s not clear how strict it will be.The final match of the night was the big one: a heavyweight showdown between Larratt, who goes by the nickname “No Limits,” and Michael “Monster” Todd, sporting a long, dark beard and ominous scowl.Backstage before the match, Larratt prowled the halls in a lime green hoodie and matching sneakers, letting out long, deep breaths that sounded a bit like a steam locomotive struggling to get up a hill. When he stepped out on the stage for the introductions, he nodded confidently in Todd’s direction.“It’s time, Michael. It’s time,” Larratt said.The two giants split the first four pins, leading to a decisive final match in the best-of-five title round. Bound together with a thin orange strap to keep their hands from slipping apart, they dug in for a showdown that seemingly had no end.Two inches shorter but 40 pounds heavier, Todd quickly crouched at the side of the table in a technique that gave him an edge in leverage. He finally wore Larratt down for the pin after an excruciating 2½ minutes that seemed much longer in a sport where matches are often decided in a matter of seconds.When it was over, these seemingly bitter foes quickly resumed their friendship. Todd praised Larratt for his military service and all he’s done for arm wrestling. Their wives hugged. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/David Goldman)ATLANTA — Geoff Hale is a mild-mannered, bespectacled geologist by day.He takes on a whole new persona when he steps into The Pit.ADVERTISEMENT There was Devon Larratt, a towering Canadian who is perhaps the sport’s biggest star. The 40-year-old has done seven tours of duty in Afghanistan as part of special forces.There was Fia Reisek, who grew up in far northern Sweden in a family of loggers, which made for a natural transition to arm wrestling. She has won several world titles and emerged as the strongest of four women competing in the WAL’s middleweight division.All seemed laid-back and downright normal.That changed when they were called to the table, egged on by the music and the lights and several hundred screaming fans surrounding The Pit.Hale takes his cue from a famous cartoon character.“Everybody loves Joker from ‘Batman,’” he said. “He’s funny, but he’s evil. He’s a bad dude if you really get down to it. That’s kind of what I wanted to create. The guy you love to hate.”At 41, Chaffee is old enough to remember “Over The Top” from its release in 1987. “I was probably one of the nine people who saw it in the theater that year,” he joked, having been subjected to the ludicrous tale of a long-haul truck driver (played by Stallone) who tries to win back the affections of his estranged son by becoming a champion arm wrestler.“People always ask, ‘Do you turn your hat around?’ Do you drink motor oil at the table?’” Chaffee said, remembering two of the movie’s more notorious scenes. “No, it’s not really like that.”Reisek was never much for traditional sports.She always felt more at home going hand to hand.

The sport of arm wrestling does that, unlike anything else. You see just brutal competition and strategy and moves and counter-moves and people that just want to rip each other’s arms off at the table. But afterward, there’s always an embrace.”Arm wrestling is merely a part-time job for these athletes, who traveled to the Atlanta from seven countries and a wide range of backgrounds.There was Hale, who runs a petroleum consulting firm in Oklahoma with his wife, has a 13-month-old daughter and competed in checkered Vans right out of the Jeff Spicoli Collection. After winning a four-man “battle royale,” he had to catch an early morning flight to be back at work on Thursday.There was David Chaffee, who works as a maximum-security jail guard in Erie, Pennsylvania. He broke his arm not long after taking up the sport but has come back stronger than ever, a 275-pound behemoth who routed his Bulgarian opponent with three quick pins.ADVERTISEMENT Larratt tried to clap for his opponent, but all he could muster was a left hand tapping against his leg.He can’t wait to do it again.“I’ve got a lot to work on,” Larratt said. “But I’ll be back. I promise you that. I love arm wrestling like crazy.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Real Madrid revenue reaches 750 million euros, up 11 percent Eyes bulging.

That’s what comes out when you’re on the table.”Hale competes in the World Armwrestling League, a fledgling organization that hopes to take this most basic of sports beyond the barroom, to make it something more than a simplistic way to determining who buys the next round of beers and a punchline for Sylvester Stallone’s 1980s crime against filmmaking , “Over The Top.” LATEST STORIES
