Rob left Quindalup today, actually just on dusk or very early this morning.
He didn't actually say but looks like it was on dusk.

Heading for Cape Leeuwin. May stop at Bunker Bay.[15nm]

Has to get around Cape Naturaliste then may stop at Canal Rocks [20nm]

Or Hamelin Bay [50nm]

Or Cape Leeuwin [75nm] which fits with leaving today at dusk.

Then has 250nm to reach Israelite Bay and the big 300nm to Eucla, the next possible anchorage.

well I'm glad to be done with that south west coast, we hit that at the totally wrong time. Now I'm a bit early for the east bound crossing of the southern coast as the SE are still the prevailing wind and the Highs are still traveling a bit to far south. Mid March should be good but I'll get to Albany before then and hopefully Esperance.

The Marina here at Augusta is a Dept. of Transport affair. There are several DOT marinas in WA and they are extremely expensive for what you get. This one is brand new, it has only one unisex shower available for use and now washing machines. Town is to far to walk and the mobile coverage is only one bar. Needless to say there is no other choice but to wait here as the river mouth is choked and I can't see them opening that up now. I may have to get the guitar out and start busking to pay my fees.

Sundowner is in pretty good shape. The sails are very dirty from all the red dust up north but I'm hoping the rain will give them a wash down in these southern lats. The 8hp yammy outboard was a few years old when I left and although she has pretty good compression is getting a bit tired, I'm thinking a 4 stroke is on the cards when I get some disposable income next. The running rigging has been on the boat since I bought her and is still in good enough condition to use but it isn't new anymore. My new paint job on the hull has a tea stain around the water line where bundaberg acid washed her after I told them not to, and I spilled some epoxy where I opened up the deck drain holes. I've replaced the stove burners as one was U/S (Tamar Marine Tas. got them for me) and that's about all.

cheers
Rob

So what was the 24 hour fee Rob?

Well it's time to move on, I've waited two weeks for a SW wind but these SE blows of 15-25 have been persisting. I'm hoping for slightly lighter conditions over the next few days so beating to windward hopefully won't be to bad. I'm told there are some courtesy moorings up at Albany and I will do a few repairs there and get her ready for the crossing.
