FORAGE Making the Most of What We Have (Spearfishing and Fish Head Soup) - Free Range Sailing Ep 115
Having. A boom trial there's, been no loud crash yet no. The. Frames of those to read more long and we're just gonna make a soup out of them. Welcome. To free-range saline join. Us as we sail around Australia visiting, its wild places in our 30-foot 50, year old sailing boat in rural. Living. Off the land and sea while sailing a yacht that cost less than a new car we, show that it's possible to have big adventures, with, a seaworthy boat on, a very modest budget. Ewald. I'll have my whole wedding gear. Bye. That. Was pretty awesome one of my little brother's friends Casey who came and visited us he's coming up the East Coast and his little Hobie cats, that's pretty minimal. Minimal. But that is minimal. Hey. What's happening. Pesky, the pro fishermen. By. Driving. Don't, to cry. There's, nothing in the crabpot we went and got some fat looking oysters off the pier. I'm. Just shocking the oysters that we collected, at Soldier, point yesterday. And. My hair's wet because I went in first women who actually motivated, me to shuck these oysters I was feeling a bit, Moochie. Now I'm feeling motivated after. Getting in the cold water. Very. Soon. Goes. Crown. That. One in points. Last. Week we broke up ooom and carried out a temporary, repair, so we could continue our travels southwards, with. The fiberglass cured it was time to reattach the mainsail say, goodbye to Port Stephens and take our boat out for a trial run. With. The sale back on we raked up the raping lines and, we were ready to go. Go to, cry. You. Just watched us head, out of quite Steven and it was pretty spectacular coming. Out of that entrance there the rocks are pretty amazing, and. We're. Having. A boom trial. How's. She holding up skipper. There's. Been no loud cracks yet no, we're. Heading out to, Broughton. Island which is about 10, nautical miles, from the. Interest support Stevens they're, gonna have a look there and. Maybe. Go for a dive. Yeah. We're, not here yet, so. There's quite a large swell, invading, into the spot that we didn't mark to anchor in so we're gonna go look around the, other side of the island, fingers.
Crossed We find somewhere to go. Yeah. Well we might just go and have a look just where, the waves are washing over those rocks and where they trickle down off the back we're gonna have a look at that it should be something completely different to what we normally look at yeah. It's gonna be cool. I'm. Out of my element now that we're out of the tropics mm-hmm. But. No. We're just we'll just start with water movement how about that yeah. Not. Being familiar with this area, we just started by looking for areas of current and wave motion, in order to find fish. Diving. Down to check on the dingey zonka we immediately, discovered, a little group of Fort Jackson sharks. No. No. We got the frames of most to read more on that moron, moron we've. Got the frames of those to read more on that Troy shot this morning and. We're just going to make a soup out of them we do this a lot in our pressure cooker and it's really easy we just Chuck the frames in that choice Troy. Has scrubbed down with a brush to get rid of all the slime and a bit of the scale, so. Yeah we just got the fish head in there garbage, and the, frames because. He's alright we've already put the Phillips in the fridge so. I'm. Just going to make like a thai-style one, I'm. Just going to put a little bit of sea water in a bit of fresh water some ginger and some fish sauce and some chili and that's it and then we're just going to bring it to pressure and cook it for about 10 minutes. Oh. We've. Got some pesky seagulls out there, all. Right so that's on their suits on and we'll, just leave it until, it comes to pressure and then leave it for ten minutes and then. We're. Just gonna leave it on the stove and later tonight I'll make a suit with it and show you what I'm going to make. Ah. I put. You to work. Never. Stops there's, not a lot to recover like it wasn't too bad a filling job but in between the bones are still enough flesh, to make it worthwhile just, just. To recover and we'll just get these clean bones afterwards, just a quick job we've got really beautiful stock, I think, we'll add another fill it in just. Block, out slip a bit, there's the stock and try, pick the meat out and we put the meat in and we've added like a little bit of Brussels sprouts. Mmm. Nice. Coming. Aback creamed corn and fishless please stop go go really well together. The, loss of the coriander, very. Lost. There's, a big bowl of soup. It's. Good it's. Boiling hot but, it's good. There's. A wind coming from. We're. Flowing along again we're going on a beam reach - what that means for, any of you non sailors, is the wind is coming straight. On to the side of the boat and actually as a way of hitting the hosiery we're screwed be and have, a bit of a surf in the wind comes from behind us before the autopilot, takes.
Us Back so. You might think that when the wind is and everything else is right on the side of the boat that would be the you know like the roughest time. For you to sail but it's not actually the case when, we're reaching like this when the winds on our beam, it's. Actually not too bad because the sails. Set. Out from the boat and. Except for the role of the waves the winds not pushing you over when. You're close. On the wind when you're close hauled so if the wind is quite, close to the front of your bow that's, when you're actually leaned over more but like this it's. Not too bad the, only the only thing giving us a bit of trouble at the moment is better. Sloppy. Mader meter-and-a-half see ya, so that's sort of rolling us rags it's hitting us exactly sideways, but. Nothing that it feels quite sedate you know cruising, down I'm, probably got about 15. Sometimes, gusting, up to 20 knots at the moment yes. Yeah, pretty, neither here nor there Pesky's out there at the moment making funny whooping, noise --is turns, out she's getting excited she's been watching whales. All. Sorts of things and been going on it's been. Pretty eventful coming, down the New South Wales Coast I, didn't. Know what to expect but. It's it's been pretty fun. There's. So many ways you can look out along the coastline, you can just see spurts. There spurts like blowing. In the wind but, you see a puddle of, water. They. All seem to have the coast. Whoa. Dude, George Hemi a pesky. Save. Some of the things of heaven acre won't fly oh man. So. We've. Jobs we've come down and through the wind so where we're. Heading. Down we're. Going pretty much straight, down damn, weather near what, do you think about this pretty. Good, going. Like seven and a half knots still, but. It feels to date does feel much better. We've. Shut down that wind generator and we've got a bit lower and it feels a lot more gentle once you're up on deck it's and particularly the wind generator howling it just seems a little bit crazy, it does. Well. This is hopefully, this is our line to. Parcel, for the next ríos. We're. Gonna get it too early again. Yeah. I. Will. Have wind to go into the harbor yeah so you might be pushing a little bit of tired yeah. Sometimes. What can happen is you'll have, tide. Coming out and if there's a bit of waves, can't like coming into the harbor yes stand it up and make it more, exciting, so, it's cut to 17, meters for big ships so. There's no bar yeah, it doesn't mean it can't still be just a little bit uncomfortable going in yeah. So. This is uh this is a pretty sedate, way oh. So. This is a pretty sedate way to do six, or seven knots really, and. As. He's just doing some comic relief there. Since. She's just showing that it is actually on a on a sailing boat at the moment. There's. No crash there's no splash it's not very dramatic, they're. Making great time. Do. You want um. What. Sort of Tabasco, do you want with your sundae smoked. Filet or normal, yes. Mate. If. You were to say that's coming into New Castle the other night and the, reason why we came in this because. We're. Picking up a new fridge later the frit new fridge basket, for the rusty old angle, this. Fridge that's been through a bit I even had the custom make out. Of some scrap wood timber. Handle. But. Then we have this new one so this, one's been repaired. And renovated a, few times where it's actually stayed to crack and come apart so. On. A boat there's. So much to do I can see people down what are you just fix it up again but you really have to pick your battles yes. So. Making another French leap. To. Take on. Because. Those pesky rather, we pointed out to me when I was talking about making you. You're. Gonna be shipping a noun yeah. You. Have to put the new bask in it still rusty that one. New. Your Rost free basket, it's a shame they don't make them in plastic. It's. Got good plastic coating. But. I guess. Goodbye. Rusty basket, oh, do. You need the sponges a little water in there is. Am. I ever gonna be able to get in. This. Is like a new fridge, are. You happy not. As happy as you are, I'm. Happy because you're happy. Make.
