I was only going slowly so easy to let the boat steer herself.
My next challenge is to cross the gulf to Tapley Shoals, near Edithberg solo.
My friend does it.
Takes an hour in good conditions.
My worst fear was setting off at silly O'clock in the dark, no radar, just GPS and sharp eyes.
I often do pre dawn runs south 20 odd K's . Have to be on this certain spot for daybreak. The Snapper only bite for up to an hour.
It's just a question of building up confidence and experience.
