Thanks Tom. :D

We've berthed Great Sandy in Tin Can bay, a sleepy village at the southern end of the Great Sandy Straits. This morning we caught the Greyhound back to Noosa for a couple of days to sign legal docs and attend to life's administrivia. Already looking forward to getting back onto Great Sandy. :wink:

Pretty nice to be able to put the boat in a nice slip and head home for a few days when needed.

Yep, especially when the port/marina is still predominantly a commercial fishing one. We're back on Great Sandy, and today we got a new and interesting aft neighbour - an outa-town commercial long-liner which no doubt wlll run its engines and night-sky-white-out lights 24/7. What global warming?

Interesting and thirsty crew though. :wink:

I am totally surprised a crew of commercial fishermen would indulge in adult beverages while in port :doh: :lol:

Hi fallguy there are hundreds of inspection sheets on the web here is one that covers everthing generally but you could make more detailed if you want. https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/ ... klist-form Here is a hole group of inspection forms if this one doesn't fit. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=bo ...

Hope you had a nice Thankgiving.

Hope all is well GB! Tom
