We’re just having a lot of problems with the boat and not having a great deal of luck,” Thomas said.
“Week by week we are ironing out the problems.
“Hopefully we can continue to improve as the season goes on.”
There are no teething problems for Turner and his crew aboard Sutech.
Their intentions have been clear from the start of the season – collect as much silverware as possible.
Daniel Turner held off brother Joe to win by 16 seconds, with Fluid more than a minute behind the front two.
C-Side Surveyors (Jessica Iles) won on handicap from Belsah (Pete Warner) and Allow Our Name (Daryl Milham).
Fluid holds the overall club championship lead after two heats.
Next weekend will see the fleet of skiffs head south to the waters of Lake Illawarra near Wollongong for the first two heats of the NSW State Championship.
