NW approach buoy, Brisbane

After leaving Wide Bay Bar Reboot proceeded down the coast. Basically becalmed for 3 hours, good wind, and then on approach to the Brisbane channel becalmed again. As I am doing about 0.6 knots a fishing boat almost hits me and then starts cursing at me. Since he came up on my stern it was his problem, not mine. I decided that with all the work lights and Reboot running with a tricolor he never saw me until almost too late I threaded my way through about 20 anchored boats, dealt with the crazy fisherman, and then was picked up by Brisbane VTS (vessel traffic services.) They worked me around a number of arriving and departing ships. It was nice that they also told the ships where I was. Anchored for the night. Reboot is rolling like mad but that beats threading the needle in the dark.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
