AlfiieOnWay We received word from Kevin that "The Ambulance" aka Alfie II is on its way to its new home, Nimowa Island. It left last night on the freighter Pacific Harmony for Port Moresby via Brisbane.

Tracking aficionados will want to track it on its way with Marinetraffic.com - the picture on the left shows it off Port Macquarie this morning.. No doubt the full story of the delivery to Nimowa Island will unfold and there are bound to be a few stories to tell by the time Kevin, Ross and Keith return.

Well done Kevin (article) and everyone who helped that dream come true. May the PNG customs and Coral Sea Gods be with you.
