We had him as our skipper for our trip to the Monties with Blue Juice in Aug 2014. He'd just got his ticket and this was his first trip as boss. Gary was onboard as an observer and it would have been interesting to see how he would have behaved if no boss was around. It's pretty evident that it would have been interesting to say the least!. Would hate to be responsible for the reimbursement for all of the irate punters for his latest shenanigans.

 like to jump on a great whites back (in a previous interview), may result in one of those "negative encounters" they call it now. Cant believe the skipper of an expensive charter would be so stupid ruined it for all on board, cost govt in rescue and treatment - what a dickhead!!

 Were they really at Varanus?

 Were they really at Varanus? Seems a bit odd. Not the best anchorages down there compared to their houseboat in Claret Bay. The big lemons hang around the back and get hand fed the frames there too.  
Fair bit of marine traffic around the Lowendals at the moment with the Apache decommissioning.

 The bites he got will be the last thing on his mind.

They have had AMSA , DoT, DPAW and Lawyers calling for his blood. The charter industry out of Exmouth has been shut down while the investigation is going on.


Punters want their money back because of this charter cut short, other operators are losing money all because some clown wants to offer his arse for a shark to bite.
