Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

Oh yeh and I swung in to the boat after work and glassed the two decks that I sanded and prepped on Saturday.

Too messy to take pics but y'all enjoy the Warships pics I just posted tonight and Axe again tomorrow :-)

Yes Matt, Auzi land was one of my favorites when I was in. If you could get used to the drivers on the wrong side of the road, you'd swear you were in San Diego. The ships with aircraft always drew the most attention, and those are the ones I served on. But Man, those Auzi girls were so much fun!
One day, I'll return on my own boat.

I notice from second pict down what you are really doing is trying to get another anchor debate going - LOL!!!


BTW - If there is one thing U.S. is good at is fccking foreign lands up... sometimes when necessary... sometimes not. Why such a U.S. force to dock there at this time? Am I missing something regarding international doings? Or, maybe, our Navy folks are simply frolicking in the fun of BIG-Equipment exercises!!

Art,
No anchor debate. It's the Navy and of course they have Navy anchors. No Rocna Supremes in sight. I see Navy anchors on Craig's List at times. Mostly Dans though.

I'm supprised Mat got that close to active Navy ships.

Getting close to 2000 posts here. Has it happened before?

That was my first thought. Seems like they'd have closed off the whole neighborhood and posted snipers. Glad you lived to post the pics!

Lol they have closed off half the city but I'm a Port Safety Manager at Fremantle Port and have unlimited access to all Port operations here. My job has some perks :-)

That is a waste/cooking oils truck mate. Big girls like these fuel up at the BP 'T' Head terminal from the refinery in the Outer Harbour.

Not sure mate but it's attracting some attention and little Fremantle is flooded with the U.S. Contingent

Art-you beat me to it on the anchor in Pic #2. But then again, I guess that sucker can anchor any frickin' place it wants to, anytime it wants to, probably runs its generator 24X7 too.
On why they are there, I think the US has been making a little show of force in the South China Sea due to China's wanting to pretty much claim the entire Sea as its sovereign water.

I think the real reason is somewhat more mundane sorry guys. We just had the carrier US George Washington in here in Brisbane. They are here for joint exercises with Aussie off the Queensland coast, as some co-operative defence deal we have, is my understanding.

USS George Washington: Nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, 5,500 crew arrive in Brisbane - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

I suspect those in Fremantle are there for the same reason, but Matt may know more. Possibly purely coincidental, but I suspect not.
