Position 12.52S 143.21E
We are currently anchored at the mouth of the Lockhart River, 140 miles south of Cape York. There is a barge nearby that supplies fuel and supplies to the prawn trawlers that we see working up the coast inside the reef. The very friendly operator tells us that there is an 18ft salty (crock) in the which is why he stays on his boat... not alongside or under!
