Do the ferry captains look similar to the Mosman Mayor above?

If so, I'm starting to really look forward to this trip. :D

Some do, but you got to get real close beacuse they don't always like getting out on the bridge wings. Messes up their hair...

If you're lucky you can get over to Balmain where the ferries go to sleep and watch them soaping the ferries down just before sunset.

G'day all. My apologies for tomorrow, unfortunately I'll have to miss out.
I have just come inside from the cold garage where I have been doing some mods to my roof rack system (adding a second set of roof bars to increase the load bearing capability) and a mod on the rudder to enable attachment of a tiller should the steering lines let go. Unfortunately I have still too many loose ends and I am not roadworthy or seaworthy :( :( :( :(
Will have to to meet all you guys another day. Have a great day fellas!! :D :D

Ditto. Apologies as well. I've been looking forward to this for the last month and at the last minute I have finished up car-less due to other family priorities. Hope you all have ( or had ) a great day. Looking forward to the pics.

( damn it, I was looking forward to catching up with the Mayor again )

Geez Slaughter,
The girls from the Mosman carpark cleaning squad were all hot and sweaty after a long shift and they asked us to help soap them down. We did our best but there just weren't enough of us to do the job properly. You were sorely missed mate.

Hi Guys,

Thanks to all that managed to get down for the day. Weather was amazing, swell was simply awesome fun.......especially through the heads!

Thanks to kerli for manning the safety boat, as boring as it was, at least he had the pleasure of watching us sail around him all day!

We will be organising another our next BIG day toward the middle of the year...

Kerli has said we will put everything in again for the next day, you guys need to suggeset a place that has the three things 1) A place to launch 2) a place to stop in for lunch 3) a place to park cars/trailers and i suppose, to be specific 4) water to sail on.................

Let me know, we are thinking around Sunday 17th July............

Photos to come of yesterday....

Cheers
Barnsie
