Just found out there was another tinny that sunk pretty close to there too, on the same day.

Just in Tiwi.
If you need a extra hand in the boat out there I can meet you at the boat ramp.

Went for a walk from Buff boat ramp yesterday arvo and found some of my gear spread out. Also found the other tinny as well as the motor a few hundred meters away, he's grabbing it now.

My tinny still haven't found, but most of my stuff was up near the mouth of Micket Creek, so I'm thinking it's over the creek in the tree line. I couldn't get that far on foot to look.

Went and towed it today, thanks to NinjaFish. Can't thank him enough for offering to come and grab it with his mate. Absolute legends.

It was on the mouth of Micket Creek in the trees. Someone was nice enough to unscrew the sounder and take it, and also tried to take the motor but couldn't get the bolts off.

Time for a bigger boat.

Great result Bucky, nice work by ninja & co, I thought the mongrels might have salvaged more than just the sounder, chuck a new outboard on and good to go again.

All good. It was a lesson. Lost a few rods, sounder, fuel tank, battery, esky, safety gear, bluetooth speaker. Could have been much worse though.
