    I call it running the gauntlet... "I think there is enough water there at the moment" as the outboard starts to complain. Rous channel, meh, we can cut that corner! Days gutter, there is enough water to get in there from the South Passage side....

    I know the bay quite well, but I still manage to find them.

    The reef on the north side of peel island. Heading straight into the sun about 6am one morning and couldn’t see the sounder properly. Ouch. About $3000 worth of damage to evinrude.

    Hmmm me too (I was lucky no damage), I thought people were just being freindly waving to me but no they were warning me about the reef, after that episode I bought a mapping GPS!

    Travelling by Yacht off Bali just before dawn only to realise there were hundereds of unlit sailing canoes laying out nets all around us. Picked up a rope on the keel and had to jump over in the pre dawn in 1500 ft of water and cut off.
