Fog stops river traffic


The Citycat ferry in this photo is less than 100 metres away and there are two others also stopped nearby but not visible due to the fog on the river today. I stayed put for 90 minutes in my ferry as it was unsafe for navigation due to the lack of visibility.

Feeling versatile

Received a call from local yacht broker Robbie Somers this morning asking me to do an inspection of a boat (Cat-Man-Do, pictured below)  with some prospective purchasers as he was unavailable. So when I’m not driving ferries five or six days a week I get requests like this or to captain the charter boat as I did on Saturday. It is nice to feel wanted.

Some Winter weather, finally

After enjoying amazingly warm winter days this season we finally received some real winter weather. Heavy rain on the river and a cold Westerly breeze. It only reached 14 degrees C at New Farm where I worked the cross river run from Norman Park.

Views from my office window

Magnificent night vistas from my corner office window (wheelhouse) as we do a late shift with Brisbane Ferries on the river.
