We have had a few short practice runs Neville and the others are only going down for six weeks. And we are all grownups and have set some ground rules in place. :-T :)

Cheers

The last four weeks have gone by in a whirlwind !! I have never felt so disorganised, but we will be starting our journey mid morning tomorrow :-T I even managed to give my little 5HP outboard a run in the test drum yesterday, so I am confident that it will start when we get to our first South Island fishing stop :TU

Cheers
