New years day incident

A few words from Brad.....

"Just a quick note to all of you who have sent myself and Richard your kind comments since the accident yesterday in Exmouth.

Both Richard and I are fine, but very brused!! I got released today and Rich will be out tomorrow, I want to send out a big thanks to everybody that helped during and after the incident.

Lastly a massive thanks to Tim Mayers, not only did you help with the incident but he got the boat recovered and I believe had the engine running by midnight (what kept you mate!!).

Thanks to all who assisted.
