Year 5 Day 88 Keppel Bay Marina

28 April 2012 | Keppel Bay Marina, Rosslyn, AU
Dave/Rainy and Windy
Our run over to Rosslyn where Keppel Bat Marina is located was soggy, bumpy and cold. Fortunately, it was also very, very short. It was only 7 nm and before we knew it, we were tied up at the dock. The marina had no one available to catch our dock lines and given the bad weather, no one else was around to lend a hand. Thus, Mary Margaret and I just slipped the boat in between the dock finger and the trawler that was to be our port. As Mary Margaret controlled the helm, I hopped off and secured our line. “No worries mate!”

I went into the marina office and presented our papers and prepaid our bill. I also reserved their free courtesy car for the afternoon to go shopping. Around 1445 we hopped in that car and drove to find the supermarkets in the neighboring town of Yeppoon. We visited both Woolworths and Coles and made a quick stop at in drive-thru liquor store to stock up on the cruisers liquid of life, beer. We had returned to the marina by 1700.

Back in a marina again…ugh! It is a very nice marina but the each dock is very, very long. We are in slip 83 of 84. Thus we are at the seaward end. It is over 600 feet just to get off this dock! It makes for a long haul when you are schlepping provisions to your boat…

We will be here for a couple of days and then off we go on our way up north.
