ay.........yeah, after you go over the bridge at end of gorge, the gate is on your right as you go through a wide sweeping s bend off the bridge. If you get to a long narrow, high bridge on your right, (Ballance bridge) you have gone 100 metres too far. ;D

Wizard almost shortened his boat by 4ft with a rock wall on a sharp left hander ::) ::) ::) ::) but with a lot of luck and  a foot flat when unit bit he got around ;D ;D ;D ;D Phew ;D ;D ;D

We had a slight water intake problem on GDR's boat when a full sand trap put a stone where it shouldn't be,  the engine got a bit hot but seemed ok when it cooled and was running again ;D ;D

Great to meet you guys,, top guys to boat with.............Stoney you missed a great day ;D ;D

Well boy's, thats my lot. It was a thoroughly enjoyable days boating, about 5 hours in all. It was made more enjoyable for the fact my boat is running well (apart from a blocked fuel filter......quickly fixed by the kind donation of a spare filter & length of fuel line.......thanks fellas), and by good boating companions. Thanks for the great day guys.
Ya missed a good day Stoney & sandgroper................bugger!! ;D ;D ;D
