Anchored at Tangalooma Wrecks: Perfect!
I am a long time viewer and never a poster but thought i would share where we are at the moment. We left Mooloolaba (Queensland, Australia) and headed to Moreton Island and have been anchored behind the Wrecks for a week now.
The weather has been the most perfect i have ever encountered. Each day has been less that 10 knots of wind, no clouds, 28 degrees C with water temp around 21 C.
Those from these parts will know how good this area can be with great fishing and diving for the whole family. Each day i have caught a nice snapper for dinner and enjoyed diving the wrecks and seeing with my kids the beautiful fish and dolphins which are in abundance.
When we first arrived we were the only boat. Now (school holidays start today) there are almost 20 boats of all types moored up.
So far the boat has performed well and no major problems. I do have an issue with the tender motor and its dog clutch is slipping so that has prevented us from going on the plane in the little boat. I will get this fixed when i leave for Manly Boat Harbor tomorrow morning. The tide rips through this area very fast so we will catch the incoming tide to Manly and gain some free speed (it makes about 2 knots difference to our displacement speed which we travel at.)
Anyway, just thought i would share a pleasant experience with everyone else.
