However, I suspect crocs get most of the bait.
XTsea has survived the Kimberley and we are currently off Streeters Jetty in Broome waiting on some mail. It’s been over a week and my parcel has only made it from Melbourne to Welshpool(Perth mail centre).
Plenty of opportunities to give the hull and props a lookover during our trip as we managed to find ourselves high and dry four times. One of those we actually meant to do!
A poor wet season contributed to not a lot of water over the various falls, and a lack of fish. If you want to know more, take a look at our blog at http://www.xtsea.com.au
Just departing eastward from near Wadeye. 100nm to Berkely. 10-15 knots hopefully.
(And FYI Telstra 3G phone/internet service works for me quite well in the Wadeye region. No idea where the next connection will be, but we expect to be in the K’s for a couple of months.)
Here’s the issue that highlights how silly this is for me.
I pull in a legal Barramundi. You ripper! That’s dinner sorted.
The wife and I can only eat so much, so to remain on the right side of the law, I fillet off 300 grams or so, and immediately whack that on the BBQ to eat straight away.
What do I do with the rest of the fish? Toss it overboard.
Stupid and wasteful.

Looks good. Getting excited about the trip just reading it.

SV XTsea currently on a mooring in Sadgroves Creek, Darwin intending to depart for the Kimberleys in the first fortnight of May. Colleen and David and croc-bait (dog) Molly.
We have been in Darwin since late November and have a car which we will be selling before we head off, so if KCCYC members can make use of us, let us know.
Onwards to Perth after that.
Just updating what happened with this.
After contacting Ports to ask about moorings we were told there was a waiting list of about 10 yachts ahead of us.
We eventually found someone on the hard at Dinah Beach who had a fore-and-aft mooring in Sandgroves Creek that was free. He was kind enough to offer that to us for the wet season for free.
The tides make it somewhat of a challenge to get ashore during springs, but we are secure and comfortable.
We have purchased a cheapie car which we will resell before we head off to the Kimberly’s in April or so.
Southern Goulburn Island as I write. No reply from the ports as yet, I’ll phone them in the morning to see if I can get a real person to speak to.
Still in Weipa Kevin/Janie.
Trying for a mooring at the moment with the ports.
Hi Barry, We are Weipa now. Haven’t had internet since your messages.
Calling you now…
