An hour twenty we quote to guests. A hour maybe less if you come over the 309 road.

Yeah that's good. Pick the weather. Don't leave it too long we are heading for a busy summer.

Took the boat out today for the first time. It went well in the bloody rough conditions and we managed to stop and catch seven snapper. It was uncomfortable so we headed home ahead of a thunderstorm that produced some big hailstones.

It was a spring low tide when we set off through the passage still on the plane. The way I held the throttle lever in my big hands meant my thumb engaged the down tilt for the engine as we crossed the bar and I am sad to say that the prop hit the sand bar and now looks a bit on the rough side. I will have to give it a file and a polish one day. Never mind worse things have happened before and a working boat will always show the work its done.

Two photos taken today
The top photo is taken at a mussel farm not far from the Ferry Wharf and Sugarloaf. Stopped for a short time and caught some nice Snapper.

The second photo is looking across the bay at Coromandel Town.

Spent many a hour around the islands out from u scribe when I had my nice ramco before children. I really rate the place. Ten mins out from te Kumar sneak in hard behind the islands when the wind gets up. Scollaps snapper kingis and if the weather turns back to base in 15. Should have kept my boat".
