Today today, as opposed to yesterday today, I discovered yet another use for a good long boat hook - snagging the tall branches to secure the sweetest Zoider, sorry, Cider apples from the sunny zone at 12 feet...

Thanks gibbo.
Prop is a 13.25" x 17" pitch Turning Point Hustler and is spot on.

Don't remind me , 2-3 weeks to let the last starches convert to sugars and then it's into the crusher followed by my favourite Squeeze No. 2

Still, 120 liters of fizzy is an incentive

Beautiful sunny day here in Perth, about 29C.

Launched at Matilda Bay, went up to the Royal at Claissebrook, the Old Swan Brewery at Crawley then down to Freo for a late lunch at Little Creatures with ample refreshments on the way.

Cracking day.
