Another good add for evolution. I hope the make was confirmed not just gossip
From some guys that were up there when it happened, yes it was a Evo 650 with twins and it happened out at the carpark, apparently a large game boat got within 5km and turned back it was that bad but the Evo kept going. The boat is still floating out there somewhere and the trailer is still at the ramp.
The crew were bloody lucky they got the Epirb and everyone was rescued safely.
You have to respect the Ocean and some days it takes bigger balls to turn around. _________________ cheer's
I just spoke to a mate up there also and confirmed what Julian said. He did tell me that the rescue chopper only picked up 4 blokes and the other had to wait for another chopper. If this is right i would hate to be the one left behind. He also seen the Evo going out as he was coming back in, Julian i have to agree sometimes its just not worth a fish balls and pride come into fishing a bit to often these days. In the end thank god that no one got hurt. Cheers Phil. _________________ www.portphillipboatingcentre.com.au
