Point Peron Boat Ramp, 08-04-2018

 Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen

On Sunday, despite the favourable weather conditions, I needed to spend a few days in the workshop building up stocks of wood turned items. Son sent me a text in the morning 'Glass conditions'. I deleted the text quickly, got back to work. Turned a platter, looked out the window, not a breath of a breeze, hmmmm, should be out in the boat diving. No, no, gotta get back to work.

Each item I made, looked out the workshop door, bugger, still no wind. Okay, down tools, go for a dive.

Well, I could not believe how many cars were at the Point Peron boat ramp, spilled out of the carpark and onto Point Peron Road, up the HMAS STIRLING Pass office. As I was going to be launching at the gentlemanly hour of 1100, I saw boats leaving and knew I could get a park.

I then noticed the Naval Association had hosted an all day Food Market, wow, all the single cars which filled up the car/boat trailer carparks, wow, what a mess. I guess there would be a lot of angry boaties who couldn't park due to cars in theirs bays.

What were they thinking!
Oh yeah, got a good carpark and a few crays, cracker day on the water.

Saw that event was on as well when we drove in.

Was surprised the carpark was only half full of boats in the morning. With the forecast I was expecting it to be overflowing by 7:30 when we got there.

Weather wasnt as expected first up but dropped off nicely around lunch.
