25th December 2009

It’s Christmas day and fortunately we are moving between fishing grounds meaning we have down time and can relax and enjoy another feast after yesterdays Hangi.

Hamish is a great cook, his menu changers every day without exception. Over the last 6 days he has invited suggestions for Xmas dinner. I hear someone mentioned KFC !!! I understand that feller is giving Hamish a wide berth lately, and so he should.

When you’re out here for weeks on end, months in fact, the one thing we really look forward to is good food. Needless to say, Famous Hamish takes the opportunity to build on his reputation every chance he gets.

    Hi Captain John,
    Awesome to see the Christmas photo’s on your blog! Could you please pass on a message to Mr Clause (Alias Santa) that his mother thinks he’s a lot cuter WITH hair than he is without! LOL
    Wishing the crew all a very happy and safe 2010
    Kind regards
    Mrs Clause (Senior!)

    Hi to all.
    Great to be able to keep in touch through this blog site. Looks like the chef is looking after you well. Sounds like you’re having a successful trip. Cheers to Brady from his mum and dad.
    Happy new year to all the crew.
    Kind Regards

    I´m the footage finder of the Spanish Show “Cuarto Milenio”, aired in Spain since 2005. We would like to ask for permission to use a video of AP agency, New Zealand giant squid, September 2014. If I don´t receive your permission I won´t be able to get this footage. We would like to talk about the giant squids discovered in New Zealand. I look forward to hearing from you.
