Good luck on the crossing - man, without the drone view I'm not sure it is possible. Fingers crossed.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Looks like, from looking at the pics and the video, you guys need to re-nourish the beaches on the ocean side from the river side. Seems like an easy solution - hell, in Florida, we're perpetually re-nourishing our beaches. The video/pics shown here seem to show that the beaches on the outside are n...
