I know the newy breaks well, after Tasmania we are heading North April-May. We will drop into Newy for a few waves at Nobby's.

Now my next problem is where to store 4 x surfboards, sizes from 5'10" thru to 8'8", too many for lee cloths?

Think you have problems – I have got a collection of long boards up to 9’ 9” (excluding my 4 m + ocean kayak). The new/old 9’ 6” is definitely going to be a lee cloth, hoping my 5’9” or 6’3” fishes can find a home under the deck and the other 20 or so boards are happy at home or in storage.

Drop me a friend’s invite and we can keep in contact!

Shane

If Any of you guys make it down to Dover Say Hi, after falling in love with Tassie a few years ago while cruising down here we have swallowed the anchor and now own the Mussel farm off the point on the way in to Rabbit Island Anchorage, youll see us heading out there on the barge a couple of times a week and we live a bout a mile up Esperance River, Say Hi, could be a bucket of Mussels in it

I decanted a bit of mussel broth during my apprenticeship. Likewise, I am fairly up on making a meal of the local abalone.

Hi Jamel.
Thanks for your note. I am in Kings Pier Marina in the city - where the Sydney Hobart boats tie up at the finish of the race (which is why we have to vacate the marina for a week each year!) Liveaboard. I don't know Rob and cate - don't get round to the Royal much. But its a nice club and have friends that are members.
Regards
Richard

Hi Naiticatarcher.

Wen to Dover during an Easter cruise to Recherche bay. Anchored at Rabbit island and enjoyed the night. Beautiful place. I went up the Esperence River and found a workboat called Ben. Nothing unusual in that untill I read it in the light of its home port. BEN: Dover.

Probably the most clever boat name I have ever seen.

Love mussels and might take you up on the offer in February on the way to Port Davey.

Glad to meet you.

Richard
