Captain Adam’s Maiden Voyage
Trip report posted at 6:14 pm on the 5th June, 2005
Captain Adam Houghton left the Gladstone Marina on his Maiden Voyage to the Swain’s Reefs. Adam has been a most valuable crewman on the Kanimbla for the last 4 years and his personality, local knowledge and skills in seamanship make him an obvious choice as relief Skipper. Both Bruce and Garry(retired) waved him off and the wharf amid cheering from the passengers.
Here Bruce gives Adam a good luck hug ( not that there is anything wrong with a bit of man-hugging) and discuss the weather report and charter plan.
