Re: Proper water jacket cleaning

Re: Seagulls on The Murray

25 November 0854 hrs This photo shows the damage to the boat which was only visible when we recovered the boat at Goolwa. If I knew the full extent of the damage before we crossed the lake we would not have crossed the lake. Ignorance is bliss. There was also some damage to the transom and gouges on...

At Clayton Bay, a run we will never forget and are not wishing to do again soon.
The Seagulls only stopped when we tried water injection (6 times).
Tomorrow we will reach the mouth of the Murray 30 days after we started at Yarrawonga.
