Great Barrier Reef

Sunday, December 11, 1988
Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia
Sailed at 0700 h on a reincarnated Minesweeper (aren't all liveaboards?). Surprised to see a 12-yr boy going along. His father was asked at Marlin Jetty, "Are you going somewhere?" He answered, "No, but I want to make sure my son is. Get some peace and quiet around the house." Yes he was quite an active chap.

The boat was quite uncomfortable at first as the high superstructure meant heavier rolling, and it was more stable below deck .
