Nice to see your name on line, hope you're both well?
I've just forwarded you by separate mail Roger McGovern's posting from
October, explaining about the current cessation of Sydney pelagics... for
instance, that the Halicat has been sold, after many years of trusty service
by it and Hal, et al.
Yup, nice to have that facility, but someone needs to have the ability,
funds, time, energy, desire - all required to run pelagics. In the meantime,
hey, there is SOSSA out of Wollongong and the Port Stephen' pelagics, let
alone valuable interstate ones. So, let's go support them.... :-)
