    Congratulations, Marky – great expression, great effort!

    Have just heard about this now having only got back this arvo from PNG (New Britain Expedition) on that wonderful boat of yours and Craigo’s, the mighty True North. Another magical experience. As you were one of the Rabaul Volcano Pioneers (never forgetting the legendary Flemming) you should have seen the volcanoes on this trip, too!

  24. Thanks Greggy and pleased to hear that True North did it for you once again!
