10 days until departure
18 May 2018 | Brisbane, Australia
With Monkey Fist back in the water we painlessly navigated the tricky channel from the hardstand IN THE DARK! Unfortunately a night transit was necessary so as to utilize the higher tide. However we had hedged our bets by surveying the channel previously with a dingy and portable depth sounder.
And the very good news is..... we've managed to fit all 16,000 pairs of specs and sunglasses on the boat. Our calculations said we should be able to, but theory and practice sometimes don't always agree. Phew!, what a relief.
But we are thrilled to have taken this latest step. Then Frances turns to me and says " I think we can fit some more in". We'll see.
