The Double Secret Promo Day

So we found ourselves at the Yorkies Knob boat club, asking whether any vessels would be interested in helping us out. It was then that we met Ross Miller. Now let it be said that we weren’t looking for a ‘nice’ boat, and when they mentioned the name “Aroona” we were expecting just an average glorified tinnie. However walking down the arm of the marina we were left mouths gaping upon one of the most gorgeous boats we’ve ever seen. A true gentlemen, he welcomed us aboard and patiently listened to our proposition. Keen as mustard, Ross showed off the luxury vessel, leaving us drooling more. And more we got!
