FV Nausicaa Star

22 April 2013
Again to Auckland for a swing on this steel trawler. Was a case of doing the best I could without rebuilding the boat. They are catching blind eels which is unusual at best. And I can't find the photo I took of this critter.

MY Wabi-Sabi

08 April 2013
Off to Auckland for a swing on the Super Yacht Wabi-Sabi. We went to A Buoy for the swing and engine trials. Lovely lunch and excellent crew. I was sent back in the tender which was a speedy flat bottomed critter with a bow ramp.

Thirty Three

Drove to Half Moon bay for a swing on the charter boat Thirty Three. Good to see a fellow happy in his work.

Ferral Joker

11 February 2013
Holiday and shipping duties have slowed things down .
Sylvia, Barbi, Frodog and I went to Kawakawa Bay for this job. Boat just came in from an epic voyage and has been involved in lots of fish catching. Nice boat and a scenic ride also.

Island Star

21 November 2012
A nice day and this was the second swing for Charter Link and Brett and I. Boats are kept in Bayswater so it is a bit of a drive for me.

Tkiti Boo

21 November 2012 turned into a busy day with 2 jobs for Charter Link.
Tikiti Boo is a sailing cat and well found vessel. Brett and I had no problems with this swing
