On a marginal high tide we managed to navigate Monkey Fist up the Eprapah Creek to Redland City Marina ......I think when we relaunch we'll do so on a bit higher tide.

It's the first time that we've been hauled out using a Sea Lift and I must say that we were both very impressed. We felt Monkey Fist was very safe and at the same time handled with kid gloves.

Our plan is to leave Monkey Fist out the water while we drive to Tasmania and along the way do some fund raising and presentations. If any one would like a presentation at your club or for any group, just contact us via our website, we'd be more than happy to oblige. Upon our return in early April we'll start preparing Monkey Fist for the Eyeglass Assist project to the Solomon Islands.

A huge thank you to Ken, Lauren and staff at Redland City Marina for their support of Eyeglass Assist as well as their professional approach to their work.
