happy

Right then

So in the DomPost this morning, I read that maritime lawyers are reserving judgement on the Adi Gil incident until they have navigation data from the Adi Gil, since in their opinion it's impossible to judge from the two videos whether the Adi Gil accelerated into the path of the Shonan Maru 2 or whether the Shonan Maru 2 changed course to ram the Adi Gil.

Part of me suspects both skippers will end up getting charged with something, since there was time for both boats to take evasive action and neither did.

Hey look, it's a nice day! This means shearing tomorrow for me - three whole sheep but they'll probably take me twice as long since they're show sheep and I have to be careful to not cut them and also that they come out looking spiffy.

And Fidels tonight because there was none last week and I'm hanging out for their chocolate chip biscuits!
