    well where do I start. I got an Invite to take my new boat to central QLD to fish and stay Overnight around the Islands. Plan was to stay Local for two weeks, Pick the best weather to go out fish and stay on the reefs. Once we got there I went out to sus the ground out for half day and the next day it was on. we fished the Islands for Spangled Emperor , Red Throat , Coral Trout, Tusk fish, Red Emperor . Day one we landed all species and Trevally, also an amberjack before the sharks moved in. second day was the same and the third day on the way back to land Chris landed a Legal red emperor , we tried for hours after that but we couldnt find anymore. we headed back to land for a good rest and I was happy for my mate to land one and frustrated not to have landed one myself . We had a break in the weather next day and yep 5 days fishing in a row we fished . we had a really go break after that and the following looked bleak wind wise. we had other activities like taking the boat into the creek and exploring Agnes water and Gladstone. Our 3rd last day we had a break and headed out for an overnighter again but that night anchored 75km away from land was windy and looked like we where heading home with tails between our legs but someone was looking out over us as the morning was amazing so we went to the surrounding reefs for trout then turn of the tide we went for reds. Didnt take Long before I got my Dream fish, A Red Emperor , Man was I Jumping for Joy. we got another before the sharks moved in and I was onto an Amberjack of approx 25kg and was savaged, I would have loved to have landed that but wow what a fight and Only 5 meters near the boat before I lost most of the fish, Only the head remaining . we got back that night and cleaned up, slept, got up sat morning to clean the house and the Long drive home to tall this amazing story Today. Hope you Enjoy the Photos
  10. That was the easy part, the hard part was stacking all the foam back in LOL cant believe that it wasn't I have padded them nicely
  11. ok so I removed everything out of the back, foam and all and took her out, found minor droplets from the trim tabs and a split hose from the return hose of the live bait tank, also washed the deck and found water leaking from behind the funnels that drain the water to the back scuppers , all minor stuff but annoying, resealed the lot and replaced hoses with high pressure hoses, I know they wont split
