Exmouth 2019 tomorrow!!!

After last year was a bust with 1 day of good weather and 400knots of unexpected wind ,  I’m towing the Barcrusher up to Exmouth on Friday with the forecast from mid Sunday looking good (touch wood) , picked up my new HSV Sportscat Ute last week so travelling in style - had Walkinshaw tune the Duramax to near 200kw and 600nm so she Tow’s effortlessly- report to follow - staying at the lighthouse and drinking - chasing Billfish predominately on spin gear and -  drinking -  and pelagics with a bit of jigging the bottom and drinking  ,  stickbaiting the gulf and shallows - no bait trip.

lets just say in 2wd even with 285 Coopers in the dry it’s fun above 1/2 throttle off the line  with the crusher on the back piston broke! It’s lovely,  HSV suspension , leather , leather and suede wrapped dash , it’s a good thing so far. The 1000k inspection at the dealership will be more like 3500 after exmouth though.
