LOCAL TRAWLER GOES UP THE ROCKS
« on: April 08, 2013, 08:59:17 AM »

A pic of a local boat that used to belong to another retired friend of mine
up the rocks in Princess Charlotte Bay    FNQ AUSTRALIA



you can see the nozzle looks  twisted ,   and some keel cooling pipes crushed ?
 otherwise very lucky
but not a good start to the new season

hi B.B
long time no see (love your models , got some pic from ROBBIE  T )


the storey is that after a big daylight shot they were all out the back cleaning up ,idling in to the anchorage and lost track of time ( its happened before )

Hi Bob, yeh Robb said you were getting into building model boats we can't get it out of our systems (boats) the only thing I don't miss about the real ones are not having to put up with crews :-) . No I haven't seen the 'Cindy-Ann' or photo's of her,its a shame what happened to her ,always in top condition when Noel had her,I am  over in China at present,fly back to Cairns this Saturday,will have been here nearly 3months can't wait to get back home %% .With the 'Diamond-Lil' that explains it all ,had a few close calls over the years, as time gets away from you when pulling gear in etc. catch you later Bob.....
