    Swains Trailer Boat Trash Trip

    OK, who is up for the trip of a lifetime? An Ausfish M&G at the extreme limits of trailerboat range. The closest areas of the Swains are 65-70NM out of Stanage with the Percys offering a good anchorage and beach access at around the 30NM mark. The other departure spot would be from Clairview. This adds another 20NM to the Percy leg but avoids the 100km (3-4hrs) of dirt road into Stanage. It also has the added delights of the Casa Bull Resort.
    One game plan would be to spend a day getting to the kick off spot. Day two would be getting everything sorted and then slip out to the Percys. A raft up and refuel session then up at first light to run out to the Swains (about 35-40NM). Spend the night out there then head back to civilization mid afternoon. Either overnight at Percys or back to home base.
    The entire trip would be very weather dependant (especially beyond the Percys) and will chew up the best part of a week.
    Now all we need is for some CQ locals to give us the heads up on the best time of year to plan it. I have had some pretty poor weather between April and May in Stanage

    Don't forget the mandatory swim suit shot for your resume.
    Marty, I thought your crew was sorted after the negotiations with the Agnes Backpackers
