    Re: 1770 Meet and Greet 2020 Sept 4-Sept12 2020

    Well looks like my missus and me might be joining you guys up there, we had to cancel our Victorian snow trip last night due to the new covid restrictions, so now to do the logistics to get up there with finding accommodation, getting the boat and gear ready ect. will also have to see if the missus can change her work leave as well.

    Cheers

I've been contemplating a solo trip to Gladstone to head out and around Curtis island and head up to the Keppels. Something similar to 500miles from Gladstone to Mackay DVD by Johnny Mitchel but logistically I'm not sure how to do it.

    So I'm asking if there is two keen fishos (preferably experienced so won't get sick) who would like to join me on the 1770 trip?
    I have booked a large house with 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms and has a fantastic view, have a reasonable boat ready for the trip (a Cruisecraft 625 Explorer in good condition)
    Have already done the wheel bearings and prep work on the boat, have already brought the mullet bait just need a crew.
    Preferably you would enjoy a beer but not an alcoholic lol and preferably non smoker whilst on the boat.
    Would be looking to go thirds in all costs, boat fuel, bait, ice for the eskies, food in the house/lunches etc and accommodation.
    Between 3 it's pretty cheap and from memory I think $1k would easily cover your share, but would be fairly split on what we spend.

    If you are keen send me a private message and i'll give you a call.
    Cheers Alistair

    Just because your deckie gets stuck into the rum at breakfast time, does not make him an alcoholic... he's a PIRATE

    Alcohol by itself is a harmless liquid.

    Once ingested by seafaring Pirates at certain landlubber establishments, it morphs into a conduit between fact and fiction, bravado and bravery, importance and impotence, ability and inability, experience and rumour as well as having a significant impact on the mathematical conversion rates of length in relation to piscatorial predators.

    Just a quick one:
    Caltex servo now shuts at 9pm so if you're planning on towing up then fishing early, fill up in Bundy. Few road works if you go via Miriam Vale. Ice at the servo is 15 bucks per 20kg bag. You will need to book at the pub if you want a big group due to Covid. Jag the joker is also on at the pub on a friday night. The Boat storage place just out of town has bait and you can pay to wash your boat and fillet fish. Hope this helps!

    We have booked the TAB deck at the Tavern for Friday night. But no food out there, so will need to eat inside. cheers
