Just in case someone reads the above post and doesn't know the story, The Percy Island crew appear to be good people who have fought hard to preserve a cruising icon and continue a legacy begun by Andrew Martin, the islands owner many years ago. Their version of events
concerning the poster above are remarkably different than the wild claims offered by surfershane. Please read their side here
if you like, I have. I also rang the Coastal Passage
and was impressed by the volume and quality of information. Bob Norson considered the copy's I forwarded as "pathetic smears" and irrelevant to Queensland
cruisers that have been there lately but vessels visiting from other states or countries may be mislead.
