After seeing the size of the sharks we had around the boats this summer while cod fishing, I will be adding one rule for next year.

"Keep you hands inside the boat at all times, do NOT try to land your fish by hand, wait for someone to gaff it for you".

Good one. Hadn't thought of that. A shark interrupted my bottom cleaning one time while we were at anchor. Don't think my wife really believed me.

Marty,

It's a serious rule too, this summer down around St John's, a great white estimated at 14' was stealing fish right at the side of the boats.
Also scientist are satellite tracking "tagged" great whites around the island.

We just had a 17 year old board surfer killed by a shark this weekend, in front of his 3 best friends who rescued him despite the presence of the shark, but to no avail. It doesn`t happen often, but it does happen, so take care. This was on the mid northern coast of NSW state. The type of shark is not confirmed, 8ft tiger shark is suggested.

He was a lot of fun and his boat was a great playground. He and Betty were real nice people... his grandpa was Mr. Colt so he had a pretty decent armory aboard too.

His wife was nice -- she'd bake stuff.

I have a good explanation for that: The banana originated from a greenhorn who ate it before casting off the dock to head to the fishing grounds. later that day he got seasick and barfed over the side, this is where the fish come in. The fish eat what's left of the banana, which fills there stomachs hence the fish don't bite.

So the short answer is both, very good!

Thank you Andy.
When you cruise into Qld waters and we meet up you can have your pick from the beer frig or wine of your choice.
By the way another rule is that you are not allowed to drink more than the skipper. A bit un politically correct, but hey we are cruisers and rules are only a guide line aren't they.
Cheers
Benn

Peter I always have an open ear.
By the way did you see the photos of the Excel laying in the sand at Blu Lion Lagoon or was it Mystery Cay.
Looks good with the heavy chain.
By the way I went down and had a look over Brian's boat today she sure looks the goods.
Cheers
Benn
