This week there has been some (expensive) maintenance done on the Disco. She has has some new ball joints installed on the left side. I still have a slight wobble on uneven pavement (bitumen) at speed (80+ kph).
I suppose it might be some general adjustment/wear and tear in the front end (there is 240 Km on the clock).
This week I also fitted some heavy duty Rhino Racks to accomodate some future fittings. Right now I needed a method to transport my Malibu Mini X kayak. I have been able to get it off the roof on my own but I am yet to devise a good system for getting it up there by myself. I purchased a wheel step that is very useful howeve, it is not aligned to the centre so it is not suitable for getting the kayak up on the roof. I have recently found a small folding step that may do the job.
I now have the freedom to both seek out new locations on land and travel on water. I have been going out on the ocean every other day as the weather here in Palm Cove has been favorable. I am getting familiar with the equipment and venturing further and further out to sea. Watching the sun rise over the ocean is particularly satisfying and makes for a great start to the day.
I am in the procees of planning a local trip out to Hascock Island and even staying a night, diving for Painted Crayfish and fishing on the reef if the law permits. I am on the great Barrier Reef Marine Park so i need to check on the law regarding extraction.
