Hi Boys.
Its been a while since I have been in touch, but since I am back into the thick of the fishing scene here in melbourne and victoria , I am somewhat
unsure if I will be welcomed back like the provobial prodical son.
anyway, about last year this time , was the last time i took the boat out after the Snapper , and ended up with engine trouble on the water and had to radio the coast guard to rescue me at dawn.
The ride back in was accepted with red faced gratefulness and back at the jetty found the reason to be a ceased motor due to something?
not sure to this day what happened.
the replacement cost of a 115 HP yamaha was considerable so i put things on the backburner , but now that the fishing season has come around i replaced the outboard with a 140 HP yamaha and am glad to say
i am back on the water and in full swing.
went out the other day after work on the friday and caught a 5 KG
snapper first trip out, will send in the story and photo soon .

Christmas holidays are coming around and have booked to spend 16days in Tasmania with my wife and the car and boat {the kids are busy doing their own thing } travelling down the east coast which has spectacular fishing.
Taking the car and the boat by ship to Tasmania- of course !
Should be great fun!
Cheers for now !
Peter D'costa. :lol:
