Why I asked about Bundaberg is that in my experience if you can get on the northern side if it continues to move south the weather
can be pretty good. BUT, how do you know it will continue to move south, they have been known to double back.
I know what you are saying, we were actually talking about going up to Rooneys at the top of Fraser, or even over to Happy Rock, not going ashore and jumping in behind the low if it comes down.
The other side of the coin is we travel at 7.5 to 8 knot's at 1200rpm, so feel that we would be around the front of it in a couple of day's, even if we go south of New Cal
, we will still have a reserve of over 1000 litres.
We have been watching this low for about 2 week's and it does'nt seem to be going anywhere, so could have been there and back by now in pretty good weather
