You seem to have a bit of a production line going, Matt. Well, done.

I did about 8 'swings' on the "Aussie Trader" and could almost see myself coming out of that aft door under the bridge level and heading down to the backdoor of the bar - very convenient.

She was am extrememly uncomfortable ship at sea and vibrated like nobody's business, but I stayed for the laughs.

I recall one trip running down to Auckland - Australia had just beaten New Zealand in the Bledisloe Cup. A northbound RAN Patrol Boat, from Auckland bound Lord Howe Island, called us on the VHF and said: "Nice to meet a friendly ship in enemy waters!" I'm sure they were kidding, they would have had as much fun as we always did.

When are you going to make the "Iron York"?
