Gil’s croc proved 9’6” upon measurement.

Left around ten and motored to Munda Point and met Mr Goldie, a famous missionary who is not on too good terms with Suva. Most of the goons went ashore and many curios were given to the crew in general and these will probably be raffled off soon. Left there and soon ran aground Pearson Tongue again. Got off via use of the kedge anchor. Dropped anchor in entrance to Diamond Narrows. Another croc hunt tonight.

I think I forgot to mention that Nora is now on Gil’s watch and no kids – at least until Port Moresby.

On way to Goldie’s place we shot off some firecrackers and Skipper disgraced himself at Gil’s attempted joke.
