talking of trawlers sinking...........Damien, do you remember some years ago a trawler running aground on the Great Barrier Reef.........a british trawler that some numpty from england was sailing around the world with his polynesian wife.....
once it had run aground in a storm, he decided to live aboard..................what happened to that one matey........do you have any clue.
I have a full story of her somewhere, and some areal pictures of her somewhere.

I always found it really bizzare, and very strange sort of life for a chap who had been so regimented in the police force to do something like that........but fascinating just the same.
