We didn't have much time here in Mackay, so we got in, did our business, and got out (the above picture is us 'getting out' through a field of nearly 50 bulk coal carriers) For only 24 hours here, we seemed to do quite a bit of damage. We mass brochured the marina, ran into Urs, got a little bit older, and posed for a picture. Kerry (now a new member of OceansWatch) of catamaran 'Aussie 01' framed us beneath the logo on our boom. She will be writing a small piece on OceansWatch the work we do in The Coastal Passage
