No such thing as recreational boat registration in the NT. They scrapped it many years ago because of the cost of administration.

At $290.30 it's a few bucks more than NSW. In fact since the yacht has no engine it doesn't need to be registered at all, but it's moored at anchor and I'd like the authorities to be able to find me if it "wanders off" as happened to the previous owner.

Tassie's the same I believe. As long as you're not in another state for more than 3 months, no rego required.

Lots cheaper than car rego. Moored at anchor means what it says, the current mooring location on the Brisbane River isn't subject to fees. The yacht was moored on a home-made mooring in the same location but this pulled during a storm and was discarded by the last owner.

So Qld can actually be cheaper in this regard. Not many spots around Port Phillip where you can get away with that!

Oh yeah, and unless someone has found a way to grow potatoes at the bottom of the ocean inside a shell, there's no such thing as a potato scallop. (I'm from Melbourne ...)

This may clarify things:

Moor \Moor\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Moored; p. pr. & vb. n. Mooring.] [Prob. fr. D. marren to tie, fasten, or moor a ship. See Mar.] 1. (Naut.) To fix or secure, as a vessel, in a particular place by casting anchor, or by fastening with cables or chains; as, the vessel was moored in the stream; they moored the boat to the wharf. 2. Fig.: To secure, or fix firmly. --Brougham.

One can moor to many things, including an anchor. I could have simply said "anchored" but that implies a temporary situation or location. I could also have simply said "moored" but many would interpret this as being at a fixed mooring or facility.

Tom-a-to: tom-ah-to. Upstairs: on deck. Downstairs:below. Galley:kitchen. Dunny,bog,loo,lavatory,thunderbox:head.

As Billy Spokeshave once so succiently put it, a rose by any other name is still a rose. Nautical terminology is a niceity and there are some who thunder on ad nauseum about what is right and proper. The bottom line is as long as everyone knows what yer talking about, then everything is fine.

There are some areas where the nautical term is absolute, such as port and starboard, as distinct from left and right, but otherwise some nomenclature can seem somewhat pompous.

That's what I reckon anyway..

Be that as it may, I eat potato scallops. The term describes a shape rather than an animal as in: Scalloped Potatoes Recipe - Taste.com.au
But, a 'cake' is not something which can be attributed to potatos cut into scallops.

But...'flake' remains one of the best things about Melbourne fish and chip shops.....

The term doesn't describe the shape of "potato scallops" at all, which aren't actually scalloped but thinly sliced. In culinary sense, the term originally referred to a seafood dish baked and served in a scallop shell, but now used more generally.

And I believe Willy the Shake wrote "That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." I suppose you're going to spit the dummy and leave now too.

BTW I agree, flake is awesome.

Nah...I'm tough!

So, scalloped edges on a photo or a scalloped hem on a dress, like scalloped spuds, are not a distinctive shape, but full of fish. Fair enough.
And as to Bill, he actually wrote it as I said (True dinks!)...but his subby was a dick and wanted to ponce the quote up a bit. Hence the words you produced.

Your windows look good. I assume you are spending a fortune on Everdure. It's a timber restorer's magic wand!

I've never seen scalloped edges on a potato scallop, you must frequent some pretty fancy fish 'n chip shops. My guess is that the term as used in Australia came about through the similarity in shape, i.e. they both resemble a deep-fried hockey puck when cooked.

In defence of the term "potato cake", there are more types of cake than mere confections. One only need consider fish cakes, or cakes of soap.

Yeah, wouldn't put that past a sub-editor at all.

Actually no, I've evolved a technique of inserting a new piece of 9mm ply into the gaping wound and then bogging up the remaining small gap. Seems to be a more robust and permanent repair method, judging from the softness of the central cabin roof which is now cracking underneath. I may have to replace a whole sheet there unfortunately, what a waste of bog and Everdure.

As a last attempt I'm going to try a layer of fibreglass first to see if I can firm it up. Sadly, Everdure wasn't the magic bullet I had hoped for in that instance. I'll use the remaining 1.5 litres to repaint the internal timberwork.

Landed four bream off four consecutive casts this morning. The Lane Cove River is teeming with them. All undersized unfortunately, so they live to swim another day.
