Re: Surprise, Not NN

NN is a good summer spot but during winter it's nice to go and check out new ground.

Re: Back to Narrowneck

Thanks Jester, at least we put them back and not in our catch bags. I think your spot has turned into a pre school with all the small ones about.

With the outgoing tide I headed out past rough rock for my first drift getting use to the rudders and paddle length on the way. Chucked ...

Re: Flags- laws/by-laws or just good practice?

Flag and light for me, having had boats its hard to see yaks (mainly Fergs) in the swells.
As for the blind skippers that once past North head then go and make a coffee or G and T, a torpedo is required.
