Troy,

That was her - I well remember your boat - you would have had a great view of the saga unfolding - first trailer arriving on Weds - first trailer departing on Weds as they realised it was too small, second trailer arriving two days later ( he had to go back to Sydney to get it - a days drive each way) then the final departure.

I remember your boat as I walked under and around her - I`m not sure I can describe what you are doing to her, its beyond a repair, beyond a rebuild... its...its HUGE. For anyone else reading - its an old classic wooden fishing trawler (the genuine article!!). I don`t know whether you have posted any story or pictures but I know everyone would be fascinated.

BTW, your seeing Malagari being loaded shows that the TF has eyes everywhere...........there is no where to hide.......someone is watching......
