GREAT SANDY STRAITS MARINA
Shui Razor cashes in his winning ticket at Ladbet International. Suki Hall is at the presentation ceremony with an official from the company, for this PR shot. The whole world cheer the Japanese rescuer for his bravery, having lost two ships to Kulo-Luna. He still dived into dangerous netting to save Kuna, the baby humpback whale.

John Storm is both amazed and pleased to learn Shui had been betting on Kulo-Luna to win.
In this fictional (original) John Storm climate and ocean adventure story, Great Sandy Straits Marina is located at Hervey Bay, Urangan, off the Fraser (Island) Coast of Queensland.
The harbour masters are Harold Harker and Todd Timms. They operate a friendly boat and yacht clubhouse, that is fairly well frequented by locals, mainly because of the good seafood and other culinary delights. Though is a relatively quiet backwater, chiefly attracting the boating fraternity. Boasting a superb restaurant that serves meals prepared to very high standards. If you like to eat and mess about in boats, this is the place for you.
Not far offshore, Kulo Luna gives birth to Kuna, then sinks the Jonah whaling ship as a potential threat to her new born. An inquisitive humpback calf, Kuna is busy exploring the coast, and enters the Marina harbour, getting tangled in ghost fishing nets.

Then John Storm joins Shui Razor in the rescue efforts. Suddenly, with a helicopter hovering overhead, their little marina is thrust into the news as an ABC main feature. Since, the whole world has been following the chase and betting on the outcome.
