Got the odd 2.5 kg cray.
Harold was showing off to a shelia back in '67. Here is a photo taken of him showing off his bottomless wetsuit that was very fashionable back in the 60's.
He was without his skindiving gear on that day, just a pair of v-neck shorts on and wanted desperately to show his aquatic skills to Ms GILLESPIE when he got sucked out of the keyhole of this lagoon on Cheviot beach. Check out where he got sucked out on a big swell. He should have read the conditions better, but an attractive lady....is an attractive lady.

Brilliant effort Mat, sorry I couldn't make it - had to choose either today or tomorrow at shoreham. Did you see any crays? - it was about 3.5k's by my calculations each way - did you measure the trip?
How did you go with the s/w change - it blew pretty hard at Mornington a bit after lunchtime.
eddie + pete, it was blowing onshore at 18 to 20 knots from the time i had up anchored in the lagoon. It was a bumpy but rapid transit from the reef back to sorrento. Round trip about 12 km tops. 4 or more ab boats out there. I was hoping to be on my pat malone. Yep there are crays there but only the whoppers are mine. Geez there were lots of people on the beach by 3.30pm.
