Go for it Rod. If you leave now, you will probably make it by next dry season. Just watch out for the 5 meter seas in the gulf. My advice is that on board “Sunshine”, you will be driving in the sunshine if that canopy takes a good wave. Actually, more likely to be swimming in the sunshine.
Check out this photo I took at Escape River, FNQ, it’s the bulwark off the bow of a vessel called “Princess Iluka” http://www.princessiluka.com.au/ If that chunk of hardware washed off that boat, good luck to the crew of “Sunshine”
It might be safer if we come over to Noosa and visit you.
