Scratching my head a bit I think it was the same era as the original Para Handy TV tales with Duncan Munro? A lot of the exploits were similar but with leanings towards the "fushing" as opposed to "coasting". Memory also says there was an expeditionary trip undertaken to the sand banks near where McDermots built their yard. Very forward thinking.

I am busy collecting stories about characters and life in the Fishertown for a exhibition this Summer in the Courthouse. Please share your stories and memories with me so that we can include them in the exhibition. There must certainly be plenty out there.
