Moreton Bay Past And Present

Hey, shhhhhh, my wife doesn't know about her yet ........ oh, you meant 'Fat Boy' ..........   Should be taking her for her maiden voyage tomorrow after Dad and I drill the holes into the legs of the canopy and windscreen. Got them back off the welder after a slight hiccup. Won't be a long session tomorrow, probably put a few pots out to use some of the freezer stuff up, troll for some mackerel, perhaps try for some squid at Green Island and possibly do a run through the Rous Channel/Small Boat Passage just to familiarise a bit (want to start targeting winter whiting with the missus and kids).

Will flick you some photos of my tinny tomorrow arvo - let me know if interested and you can always take it for a test run if it's what you're looking for. Need to sell it and our X-trail so I can bring Fat Boy home .....  Will be removing the name off the boat though as the wife (and in-laws) isn't a fan of it ......

Hope to see you out there. Probably will miss you as I will be further south than green/rouse. We will go into Rainbow but only as far as Myora. 

Hope the trip goes well for you mate. It will be a good test as is looks to be quite windy.

I am checking out an oyster lease to buy... excited.

Hi mate. Happy to catch up afterwards but I suspect my formal presentation will only go an hour. I am likely to be doing a talk at Woody Point in June as well so you may have another opportunity to hear the presentation then. I'll put a post up once I finalise the details of the next talk. Thanks everyone for their interest.
