were on the home stretch. :applause: the Harbour Master has given the nod. :mrgreen:

given the predictablilty of the sea breeze under current weather conditions - the actual scuttlign day is Sunday at around 10am. :captain:

this Sunday at 0800 28th is the last of the welding jobs 8) - myself and Flynn will be there. :drinking2: Hopefully Banjo and UNCLDUG as well. there's only 2 hours of work needed.

Next thursday - I'll dive the tippers to pin point a good position.

Saturday 4th starting at 0900, Shorelands will lift and deposit the hull on the beach outside the Darwin Trailer Boat Club. Some time in the arvo the tide will it off where we will tow it into the lee side of East Point near the moorings to anchor overnight. From here we can either have and FFF party on board or leave a volenteer to mind it over night.

WHAT WE STILL NEED - 150hp+ tow boat on Sunday morning at 0730. a volenteer(s) to keep watch overnight. 1 x water pump with 15m hoses. :drinking8:

Sorry I couldn’t make it yesterday. I was looking forward to it
Every time I try to leave this joint, something arises and I have to hang around. I'll have to chuck it in because it's beginning to interfere with my social life.

If I say I can't make it on Sunday, then I might get there!
