“So back we went and it wasn’t forty knots – it was closer to seventy knots! And you could hardly see where the sky began and the sea finished. It was full of salt and spume and it was absolutely ferocious.”

Richard Bennett

“Everywhere has got the roughest bit of water – there’s twenty-five Bass Straits around the world and everyone thinks theirs is the worst. Not true of course!”

Robert Clifford

“The night that net came up, it was just full to the foot rope, just spread out over the water a great mass in the net, you couldn’t move it, couldn’t do anything, there was that much you know.”
