Just about ready for another crack at the SAN wake Brownie :D

Jellies aren't too thick yet. Just big. Only up to ski park at this stage, and they aren't very thick there.

Re: the swimmer getting hit by a boat. She was swimming across the stretch of water between the ski park and the big rocks on the other side (ie. in the middle). A family towing a tube didn't see her, she tried to duck dive but the prop hit her feet. Taken to Shoalhaven Hospital but then transferred to Wollongong. Reckon that would be the worst feeling, having hit a swimmer!

I was suprised that there wasn't more of a presence on the water from Maritime and Police on saturday arvo. Thinking I might have to wear my prescription glasses while driving the boat...

well, I am heading down to albatross in 6 weeks for a couple of years. The wife and boat will be staying in Canberra with me travelling back home most weekends.

Although some weekends I will bring the boat down, during my down time and when I am not deployed with the teams, is there a chance of joining any1 for afterwork midweek rides???

tks greg.

Oh, that's a bit unfair! :( I'm not a workaholic, I just happen to work lots of hours. But then, we wouldn't have the boat if I didn't work the hours so it's a catch 22 situation. Just have to take the good with the bad....
