"Beautifull Sunsets"Sunrise" Dead Calm"

Had some fantastic sunsets and sunrise's on the way home!
and really calm water! Lost the wind on the last two days into Darwin,
and had to turn on the engines! "Thats Mother Nature for You!"
She always has the last say!!

Flat as a Tack!

"TIM'S Black Marlin"

"Well Tim Finally caught One"

Tim was determined to catch a Sailfish on the way back into "DARWIN"
and he hooked onto a Black Marlin! A battle for about two and a half hours,
The last hour with a broken rod! Brought it right up close to the boat then it leapt out and
broke the braid on his line! What a fish! and what a battle for Both! We don't
know anyway how we would have got it onto the boat it was so big! and besides
there was a few tiger sharks waiting for the opportunity for a free feed every time
it came to the surface! So it was a great day for Tim and the Fish!!
"Thanks "TIM" for putting us three hours behind schedule" Tim had a big grin
on his face for the rest of the day!! BEEN THERE DONE THAT!!!!

Happy Days!

Thats the Shit!
