I've got a pretty soft spot for the Bundy m'self, don't you worry. Best partof living in BUnday may well be that Bundy Royal Liquer is easy as a stop off at the distillery on the way into/out of town. Makes the best Moreton Bay Mud ever. Pretty much drank Bundy exlcusively until doing some backpacking around Europe as a ~25yo. Got introduced to single malt whisky on the shores of LochNess (just down the road form Urquhart Castle in fact). And that was the beginning of a new addiction/love affair with single malt whisky.

As for getting out to the reef - well the whole point of getting the Riv was to gain the legs to get the family out there. Until now I've just done heaps of reef fishing in Hervey Bay in my 4.4m side console. So yes and no - I've sort of been to the reef -a lot - but not in the way you were meaning, if you know what I mean. We're in the process of doing a few 'familiarisation' cruises over to Fraser at present before we venture to Musgrave etc. In fact, the weather is looking bloody marvelous this weekend so we're going to shoot off Friday lunchtime (fingers crossed).

And yes - the proximity to the reef, plus the Sandy Straits (which is bloody nice in it's own right) plus living 2 minuites away form the marina here PLUS the 3 kids enthusiasm for all things boating/fishing all played big parts in our decision to make such a big jump from the SeaJay.
