Cleaning and repainting the engine room

The maintenance continues but we’re getting closer to being back in the water.

Cleaning and repainting the engine room and replacing  various engine components while the motor and gearbox are out also adds to time taken but well worth it.

Talking to a friend who out around Steeles Reef off Waihi Beach last weekend where they had a humpback whale cruising the area, slapping his tail and generally bopping around.

There seems to have been a few more sightings than normal this year.

The fishings been slow, and  water temperature’s been down too, likely all interrelated. Colder temps change the current flows and create different conditions and we get the usual variations from season to season.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
