    Thanks Ross,

    Did you get this from Ray of Dog on Cat?

    HI there, I lost all my equipment so I don’t have the rock position but I met Ray? on the catamaran “Dog on Cat” who is always in the area. He knows about the rock cos I confirmed it with him. HE has the coords. P

    Satellite imagery puts this out from a likely looking reef (see attached), in ZoC D(5) water.

    Where and how?

    It appears this wreck occurred in York Sound and at night. From the videos it appears they hit a reef that was 300m further out than charted.

    Easy to claim travelling at night was too risky but travelling during daylight hours, tho’ safer, is not a guarantee if the water is silty. And, with Zone of Confidence C(4) charting.

    Would be nice to know exactly where this occurred.

    AVAIR SCHEDULED FLIGHT TO KALUMBURU AND JOY DAVEY’S SHUTTLE TO HONEYMOON BAY – WORKED FINE!

    AvAir and Joy Davey from Honeymoon Bay executed our crew exchange perfectly in mid-October.

    Outgoing crew rode out with Joy to Kalumburu to rendezvous with incoming crew who flew in on the Friday 0630h scheduled AvAir flight. Joy stopped in Kalumburu for butter and petrol for us. Her rate was $50 per person.

    Joy has a very interesting history and is extremely helpful. She may be able to arrange diesel and petrol with advanced notice. Take your Baja/Racor filter.

    Give Joy a shout and ask if she wants supplies from Darwin (eg. nappies).

    See y’all next season in the Kimberley!

    Anybody used these so far?

      Hi Jeff,

      Yep that’s no problem, we’ll be here.

      Out tray back can fit 3passengers comfortably, 4 if they want to squish. It’ll be $50pp and you just let us know what time the plane comes etc, we can sort details when you get here 🙂

      I’ll put you in our calendar but if you’re able to just drop us an email or call closer to the time as a reminder too that’d help.

      Cheers

    G’day fellas,

    Short of purchasing the CD this late in the season you can download the tides tables (as .pdfs) for the primary and secondary stations at <http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/tides/#!/wa-kimberley&gt;

    Another great service from BoM!

    Limitation is a chart showing those stations. Does the CD have such a chart?

    Our experience with Fannie Bay Gourmet Meats in September 2017 was a bit mixed.

    Below is our posting on their Facebook page and when I look there are quite a few negative postings (mixed in with very positive postings) –

    https://www.facebook.com/Fannie-Bay-Gourmet-Meats-324714834257090/

    Lamb rumps and other meat were full of fat and gristle that required lots of trimming.

    We placed an order for a 2 month sailing trip with a specific request to have all fat removed prior to vacuum sealing as we have limited freezer space. And, seal/freeze all in the 16cm bags they offered us.

    Order was delayed such that it arrived the day of departure so we could not return it. Opening the boxes was a horror to see the order was twice the size of that we had from Cairns previously as it included a lot of fat and gristle.

    Lamb rumps were only marginally edible after extensive trimming, rump steaks were rimmed with the thick fat that we specifically asked to be removed and the chicken thighs were not in the 16cm vacuum bags requested.

    Disappointing for an $800 order ($797 to be exact).

    Kinda sad as their Greek lamb sausages were good and the kangaroo special order was awesome.

    We will go back when in Darwin in May and quiz them why the order was not as requested. We may again buy their sausages, skippy and chicken – so long as they don’t throw us out of the store!

    But search elsewhere for lamb rumps (eg. Parup Quality Meats or a Coles).

    Another prospect for smaller amounts of fuel in 200l drums is Honeymoon Bay –

    Hi Jeff,

    There are 2 ways to do it:
    1) you can contact Nic and Jo from North Kimberley Transport on 0439 814 816 and organise a drum and transport through them. They will bring a it up on their next run, and we then charge a $5/day minding fee until you get here.

    2) we can take care of everything and have a 200L drum waiting here for $700.

    Let me know what you decide 🙂

    – Joy

    Good perspective, Ross.

    Yesterday, August 9th, Shoal quoted –

    Cessna 210, single engine, maximum 5 passengers 400 Kgs $ 1,795.00
    Cessna 310, twin engine, 4-5 passengers 450 Kgs $ 2,395.00

    AviAir only quoted for larger aircraft –

    $2,350.00 for 6 seater GA8 airvan.
    $4,680.00 for our 13 seater Cessna Caravan
    From their website it appears AviAir don’t have anything smaller.

    AviAir scheduled flights – $369 ea including 15kg luggage

    We only have 1 out and 2 in so I would be keen to hear if AviAir’s scheduled flights are working out for crew exchanges.

    Jeff.
