no problem if you make enough to cover costs and a bit for the time and trouble, but if everyone says yes if less than a tenner for example, and the numbers come out more because of not a lot of orders, then you have to come back and say sorry they will cost more than that. Personally I do not mind ...

wallabies, you just awoke an old memory from my subconscious. as a kid I always had this hazy memory of coming down Loch Lomondside from Crianlarich in my dads Ford Shooting Brake, 'Auld Bessie', and waking up late at night and seeing a wallaby jumping across the road.

I still like this one, even without sails up. http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w174/Bejasus_album/BejasusenroutetoMiami4.jpg and these ones, because the paint is new and gleaming. http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w174/Bejasus_album/DSCF2365-4-1.jpg http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w174/Bejasus...

Re: Coastguard strike & the US navy

I seem to recall from my days serving Queen & Country on one of the Grey Funnel Line ships, that when approaching land, one of the anchors was cleared away, and only held by a slip. Our ship(and I don't mean Bejasus), when coming into harbour, always prepares one anchor, just in case. Although ...

the boat is a Hardin Voyager 45. 1980 built Taiwan ketch. Heavily built grp cruiser. Avatar pic was taken last March in the Hawk Channel, Florida Keys, heading straight into the wind, hence no sails up. Your Krogen 38 looks nice too. http://www.yotblog.com/uploads/Bejasus_Bejasus_enroute_to_Miami3.j...

Dave, I would recommend any of the learning to sail type books and the RYA CompetentCrew book for the basic stuff. It would be well worth the effort, but more than this I would encourage you to do what we did and both you and Louise book up for a Competent Crew course. It was great fun and SWMBO who...
