What was our 2 line verbal contract when I loaned you my boat in Annapolis and Marblehead 20 years ago?That’s crazy. It’s almost like they have a different legal and political system down there that requires different governance practices for private clubs than in Massachusetts. Not possible!
you are way smarter than that J
Maybe the chemical would have destroyed your watermaker membrane or poisoned you. Just guessing here.The diver asked if there was a through-hull used for a water maker and did not inject the chemical in that one.

Here is one for SA's younger audience. Over 50,000 kids packed into a stadium like sardines with nary a mask in sight. Fast forward to today: With an average ticket price of $5K a seat, you must be vaxxed and wear a mask for this year's Super Bowl.
I am not trying to be a dick. But the hypocrisy here is mind boggling:

I read those 5 pages. They aren't even particularly detailed or unreasonable, all they do is state and restate, as redundantly, convolutedly, and bloviatingly as possible, approximately this:Good Grief. 5 pages of closely typed script of your responsibilities of how to use club owned boats. We have a sign in sheet and a sign out sheet, where you note anything damaged or missing on the boat.
When we left Darwin with Sail Indonesia the Customs people gave us some swag - a memo pad, a fridge magnet with instructions to phone them if we saw anything suspicious, and what we what call a toque, odd for people going from Darwin toward the equator.Maybe the chemical would have destroyed your watermaker membrane or poisoned you.

I imagine it would not be a desirable nutritional supplement.
We never found any Australian requirements particularly onerous, although I was not happy that customs seized about $500 worth of frozen beef and lamb that we had purchased in NZ before heading straight to AUS, with no stops.
Plus the AUS$300 inspection fee. We knew about the restrictions. Lost two nutmegs that we had from Grenada. They left the partially graded one.
I will say AUS takes their border protection very seriously. A border protection P-3 showed up about 100' over us when we were still about 100 miles from landfall. It also flew over us a number of times when we were working our way up the E coast inside the Great Barrier Reef and over the top to Darwin, sometimes asking us if we had seen a specific boat they were trying to locate.
We did not have an overflight until we rounded Cape York, a twin engine something or other. They called on thee VHF but with no requests.
I think they call it a toke in Aussie but yeah odd for the customs people to offer you a toke on your way to indoWhen we left Darwin with Sail Indonesia the Customs people gave us some swag - a memo pad, a fridge magnet with instructions to phone them if we saw anything suspicious, and what we what call a toque, odd for people going from Darwin toward the equator.
