    With a light show like that, you would almost break out into some disco dancing.:D

    The nav' lights were easy. The whites could have been anything. Are they '360' mast heads Tack or mooring lights?

    Just found a photo. I took a week or so ago of one coming in The Entrance the lights are so right. You just about need sunscreen if you're on the deck.

    After going past those channel lights I think I would run into the bank because I would have no night vision they are so bright!

    Thanks Tack.
    We lived in Orbost years ago and got to know Lakes rather well. My upholstery workshop had a client base there too.
    Your bar always had a reputation as being 'not the safest bar on the coast' to put it mildly. Have heard no comments for years. Has it been improved dramatically? I recall years ago a large trawler going base over apex while coming in. Think a couple died but unsure. There was a dredge permanently in the entrance pumping sand away. Was it the April Hamer?
