PJ – we have made contact with WA as you can see – WA is near ¼ a world away from NSW – especially on the Qantas “RED EYE” special out of Perth @ midnight en route to Mascot  NSW  
KFj – thanks Ken – BlueScope Steel Kembla release me a few times per year for a week or so @ BlueScope Whyalla in my consultancy, however I cannot see me getting to Perth – if Troy can find anything with the [12' 6" live steam model paddle tug] in Busselton great & would be appreciated – I have also corrected your return from the north end as below - regards Derek

PJ – I am penning this to the son of a previous work colleague in Perth WA in the hope he may be able to offer comment as I don’t believe we have any PD members in WA – is there any other detail of  a large 12' 6" live steam model paddle tug?  
Ken – this Derek Warner [ex sales manager @ Stauff ] – you will remember calling into Stauff @ Unanderra NSW with your brother [Troy] after a trip from [the top end of Australia] some 14 or 15  years ago -  I just telephoned to get your dads e-mail address however Tresea mentioned he was overseas  
PJ – Ken senior & I have shared the odd few glasses of amber fluid in many states of Australia [but of course only for work functions]  
Ken - there is nothing sinister about Paddle ducks – just a world wide group of approx 150 people with a love of model ships & in particular paddle wheelers – Derek

Hey guys!
 I'm calling any Paddleduck in Western Australia who lives within striking distance of the town of Busselton on Geographe Bay approximately 3 hours South of Perth.
 I am researching a large 12' 6" live steam model paddle tug which apparently ended up there.
 If you live in or close to that area please let me know.
