Well the big refit is going extremely well and we are right on Schedule to be done in a few weeks. Check out the progress with the pictures below. Was definately the right choice to use Glazurite paint, it comes out like nothing I have ever seen, no runs, sags or orange peel, just really tight and glossy right off the spray gun.
The season is getting closer and cant wait to get going in August for the trip up the coast, have some time available both for trips up the coast and during the season. Please let me know if any of the options might suit you for this year, or we can cater something just for you.
August 10 – 20 ish 2010 The destinations on this 10-day trip can include Wreck, Cato, Saumarez, Elusive and Bugatti Reef complexes. The plan is to get out to the Wreck or Cato and then jump from one to the next and spend a day or two at each one. Poppers and jigging for GT’s, more Wahoo than you have ever seen are around at this time of year, as well as billfish. Great anchorages are available, with incredible snorkeling and spearing – a great exploration trip to places only a few boats have ever been.
The trip is limited to 4 places for 10 days, leaving from Bundaberg and finishing in Hamilton Island or even Townsville.
August 22 – Sept 10 Hamilton Island / Townsville to Cairns – cruising the Whitsundays, or fishing the incredible outer reefs and atolls.
