This trip we had some of Jefferies Bay legends on and they were keen for some big swell, unfortunately the biggest waves we had were 5" Franklins, it was a good session though, as we had it to ourselves and it felt great to get into some bigger waves after 3 days at Burgers, perfect burgers mind you but who come to Indo to surf that? The trip had plenty of keen fisherman and sailors onboard and we caught every species of fish that Mentawai could offer, the highlight being the 25kg Wahoo that Selemat our deckie caught, Ross scored a great sailfish also and released it. Other highlights were Eddie amusing us with the amount of shit that he bought and Gavin's ability to keep his hair perfect and Marky's attempt not to have a beer before lunch. The Boys weren't happy to hear that the biggest swell of the year hit as we anchored back in Padang, anyway they will be back in 2004 to try again. I had a great time skippering the BJ.
