Pots of Gold
Slim, Jigsaw and Somewhere
(all Oram Designs) taking a rest.
Above is Mango going out through Brunswick Heads bar. August 2017.
After standing on the breakwater for ½ hr checking for sets, Paul and Mark (the new owner) decide the bar is pretty good with nothing of any size at all coming through. So back to the boat and away they go.
Then naturally, just as they clear the breakwater, in comes a big set of 4.
Mango has a 40 hp Honda and by the 4th wave everyone of them was needed. The boat got through okay; although the boys were a bit shook up. Mango then proceeded north in calm conditions to its new base over a thousand miles north, just south of Cairns.
