Sleuthing, not quite as "far out" as it might appear. My brother now lives in an apartment looking down on the Bass Strait ferry terminal. With traffic etc. be about an hour north of you. My partner's sister's, daughter lives at Moorabin.

That sister lives at Paynesville. Now there's a place to boat. A cross between a lake and Secret Waters but much much bigger and without a tidal problem. I've been on a motor boat there a few times and try to do the canals each time there on a sit-on-top kayak. A great pity there isn't a sailing dinghy available.

Splatchers, as a kid I tried to get them to work without knowing of their name. Basically skiing on mud. A couple of planks with pieces of galvanised sheet metal curved up at the front.

Gunkholing - a term that covers what we did very well.
