I can't find it at the moment, but on first glance I think I read that there was scope for further dredging of the approach channel (maybe for future expansion?). I'll try and find it again.

In the Moore report there seems to be some discussion about RMP Cl008a006. I guess RMP is Record of Momument and Place. With Cl008a006 being something which their paperwork suggested was excavated by a one Ann Lynch in 1996. Can't find what that was now. Completely unrelated to surfing though so...

Right, less chat more attachments.

I've got an email from the planning office saying they'll color scan the wave modelling report. Should make a big differnece to understanding.

They've put up color copies of the wave modelling report on the planning website for those who are interested.

means you can actually see whats going on.

Those new docs are so much more detailed than the black and white ones! I haven't had a look over them yet and tbh I don't know what I'd be looking for in terms of possible damaging effects of 'Layout H'. Anyone else had a look and got any comments on the graphs?

I'm gonna try and compare the existing layout and layout H but it's really hard as you need to keep scrolling up and down between pages to do so. Printing it off would make it so much easier. Maybe I'll try to do a jpeg edit jobbie... would anyone want to see that?

What's the best time to surf the point and island with regards swell direction and stage of tide?
