Our second tank breakage
, was in Arnhem land.
All who have made the drive out to Nhulunbuy
will understand how bad the 650kms of corrugations is. Although saying that, it is a better road then Savannah way into the NT that road was a real shocker. In one section we bottomed out in bull dust and had to engage 4wd to get out absolutely crazy.
On the track out to Nhulunbuy we cracked the corner of the tank, we found that over the course of our trip around Australia, that the constant impacts from rocks coming off the rear tyre's was taking its toll on the Poly tank, with scratches becoming deeper and deeper until eventually leading to a hole with a steady stream of water flowing out! Not the best when your planning on camping for another week before heading into town.
