  1. Sunday night in Islington Bay ... its around 1am and the 50 or more yachts and launches are quietly at anchor with crew asleep. Its a calm clear night and sound travels far and is amplified at night in the cooler air. As if in a dream I hear a distant radio that just keeps getting louder and Louder and LOUDER.A boat is slowly making its way up the eastern edge of the bay, deliberately with stereo full on. It keeps going as far as it dares and then heads back down on the western side to locate somewhere near Yankee wharf. The noise continues until, in quieter moments between songs vario
