    Well done. Unfortunately I don't see the attachments but I can see it all in my minds eye and it looks good from here. Good work.

    Well done Tom, for some weird reason I thought it was at Fingle.

    Just curious regarding seeing “Attachments” ? What would be the reason for that and is anyone else having similar problems?

    After spending about 2 hours snorkeling various ropes and floats plus levering the 24 mm chain from under the rock it got trapped under with 18 kilo bar being the right tool despite trying to drown me, the anticlimax of a relative smooth operation was just what my frayed nerves required.

    It's just on the iPhone I can't see them. I can see them on a Windows PC. It must be something about how the iPhone is configured.

    Possiblly your set up my I phone 5 is displaying pictures.
    Thank you all for the encouraging comments.

    Summoning up moving of the one ton mooring block.
    The two barrel float worked well although lacking the additional stability of four barrels. It is crucial that the cut in the middle for the ropes is completely centered.
    My framework was strapped on top with only one side lip of the top of the barrel preventing slippage, the better option would be to encase the ends of the raft to prevent slippage.
    Without a doubt the star of the day was WB and her Seymour windlass that easily managed to crank up 200 or more kilos.

    Well done Tom. I love the fact you thought it through and had a go. Hope it stays put now.

    I'll give you a call if I finally finish and need to drop a mooring for my boat!!

    I think marina for a few months while I sort myself out, but the mooring question is an interesting one for Brisbane area. Somewhere in the Brisbane river or more likely north of it somewhere? But now I have to go sand for painting........

    After crossing the Tweed Bar we just started having too much fun heading out on a fast beam reach.When we finnally hove to for late lunch our position was
    a long way South.Looks like the East Coast current is just ripping out there. Heading back under heavely reefed main we finnally ended up well south of Kingscliff with the wind now swinging more NW we had a slog on our hands. Below is Andrew with Mt Warning in the background.

    Just south of Cook Is we started motorsailing in some very sloppy conditions.
    Cook Is below with two mooring buoyes barley visible installed for the brave or the dead tired.

    The bar was good today but conditions outside were a bit confused and lumpy. With the swell we were doing around 18 kts going down the Kingscliff but north back to the bar from Cook I had the speed down to around 9 kts at times. This was in PD20.
