Great report...I'm surprised the fun police on here havent commented on you not wearing a life-jacket
"
You are required to wear a lifejacket on a powered vessel up to 4.8m, when in an open area and underway. All boaters on a vessel up to 12m in length must wear a lifejacket during times of heightened risk – such as when boating solo, crossing a bar or when there's a weather warning – when in an open area and underway.Nov 26, 2019"

Underway is not at anchor or made fast to shore. So technically if you are anchored you do not have to wear it.

That doesnt seem right...so many things can go wrong when your anchored

Under way Not at anchor, made fast to the shore, or aground - if you are
drifting, you are under way. From the Victorian boating safety handbook glossary. https://transportsafety.vic.gov.au/mari ... ting-terms
There's nothing . . . absolutely nothing . . . half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.

Good catch! I don't really hear too many reports from down that way. Either no Ody catches anything or they keep it a secret. Have you ever done any good on the squid down there?
