return of the Rodholder

Time for Rotto Bloggo's Believe It Or Not: we're indebted to the Busselton-Dunsborough Mail for this extraordinary tale with a happy ending.

"I would like to advise you our Rodholder is missing," Dr Mostyn Hamdorf told his associate Lindsay Perry.

It was bad news big time: the good doctor and Mr Perry co-own Barney's Rodholder, a snazzy 4.8m cabin cruiser.

The Rodholder went AWOL on NYE, which "galvanised a flurry of activity aimed at finding and retrieving the missing vessel", the B-DM reports.

Please revel in the writing - but to cut to the chase, computer modelling accurately predicted the Rodholder would drift towards the beautiful island.

And it was thus: the Rodholder was found close to Rottnest.

"The very grateful owners drove to Perth the following day to pick up their well-travelled but undamaged boat," the Mail concludes.

Let's hope the doctor and his mate had a refreshing beer in Thomson Bay before the long trip home.
