All Hands on Deck!!

Today I have been up the mast to check the rigging ( second time since Bundaberg ) This time I even locked wired a shackle. Yesterday dived under the boat to check the keel,props and rudders. All OK even the fresh water pod no stress cracks as the waves really gave it a thrashing. We plan to do 150 NM per day Inshallah. We head due east and most of the trip the prevailing wind will be SE or NE.

Tomorrow I hope to climb MT Gower at 3 thousand feet. The climbing party at the moment is booked out but I will hope there is a no show so I can join the party.

Picked up a 100 litres of diesel this morning, our fuel reserve, Aust $2.58 per litre.

Last two days here rather windy upto 30 kts plus and Cb's rain etc. Tomorrow becoming fine.

All is well here. Been very windy 20 - 30k here at times here today. We have had a mixed bag of weather with sun and rain. OK will sign out of this note.
