    Just a heads-up on another story in the Captain Dave Series.
    Many, many years ago – say about forty – the Maritime Services Board of New South Wales sent out letters to registered owners who moored their boats in the Cook’s River, and advertised in the local papers for the benefit of owners unknown, that all boats that were either on illegally installed moorings or were unregistered would be impounded after thirty days, and if not claimed would be offered up for auction, or destroyed if found to be unseaworthy.
    The result was that in due course a number of those vessels were towed to Goat Island in Sydney Harbour where they were broken up and burned.
    The story that I will be posting in the hopefully near future will center on the ‘liberation’ of one, or perhaps even two of these boats, and involve several characters who you may be familiar with.
    Now the time of the story might not coincide with the time this event actually took place, however it is to be written from the aspect of a Newspaper Reporter, which means of course that one never lets the truth or facts get in the way of a good story.
    🙂
    Cheers,
    Bid.
